By Rachel Martin

Belfast law firm Tughans has picked up two industry awards and been named 'corporate law firm of the year'.

It walked away with the accolades at the Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards 2016.

Corporate partner John McGuckian was also named 'young dealmaker of the year'.

This year the firm was involved in a number of large deals including the acquisition of H&J Martin by Lagan Construction and the sale of Sawyers Transport.

Over the last year, John McGuckian has overseen deals worth £200m, which included advising TotalMobile on the investment by Lyceum Capital.

He was made a partner of the firm in July 2015.

The Insider's Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards recognise the region's top corporate finance professionals, funders and lawyers.

Shortlists for each category are drawn up by an independent judging panel.
