Akima Paul Lambert chosen as a finalist in the Black British Business Awards 2021

London, 28 July 2021 – Akima Paul Lambert, Dispute Resolution partner at Hogan Lovells, has been chosen as a finalist in the Black British Business Awards 2021.

The prestigious awards programme celebrates the exceptional performance and outstanding achievements of Black entrepreneurs and professionals across the UK. Now in its eighth year, the awards highlight exceptional business talent across six industries: arts and media, consumer and luxury, start-ups, financial services, professional services, and STEM (science, tech, engineering and maths).

Akima has been chosen as a finalist in the Professional Services category for her practice focussing on high-stakes commercial litigation and arbitration. She started her career at Hogan Lovells, and re-joined Hogan Lovells as a partner earlier this year. She has led on several multijurisdictional matters, including representing BAT on various high-profile litigation matters and more recently, PJSC Tatneft in a 12-week remote trial in the Commercial Court. She is dual-qualified in the UK and in the U.S. and has experience in commercial and investment treaty arbitration.

Akima Paul Lambert said: “It is a distinct privilege to be considered among the best Black British business leaders in the UK. I am delighted with today’s recognition and hope that the awards will continue to inspire the next generation of Black business professionals and entrepreneurs in the UK and create great working environments for all talented individuals to succeed.” 

Sophie Chandauka, co-founder and chair of the awards, commented: “Our finalists have delivered tremendous commercial value across sectors in volatile markets, where entrepreneurs in particular have been decimated.

“They have been strategic advisors to their companies and boards as global corporations are challenged by investors to address systemic racism.

“Despite the pandemic and social unrest, they are fiercely competitive, creative and commercially savvy. They are global in their outlook and ambition, and represent the very best of being British in a post-pandemic, post-Brexit Europe.”

This year’s winners will be revealed in a virtual ceremony in October. To find out more, please visit the Black British Business Awards website.
