Tessa Agar Named Among the UK’s Best Up and Coming Female Lawyers

Goodwin partner Tessa Agar has been named a Rising Star by International in its UK Best Up and Coming Female Lawyers 2023 list. This year’s honorees are considered 25 of the premiere female lawyers under 40 who represent the best and brightest that the UK legal industry has to offer.
Agar is a Private Equity partner in Goodwin’s London office, where she advises on all aspects of corporate law, with a particular focus on mid-market private equity transactions, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and growth equity and venture capital investments. She also advises clients across a variety of industries, including technology, software, healthcare, telecommunications, financial services, food, and consumer products. International noted Agar’s continued representation of private equity clients such as Accel-KKR and Mayfair Equity Partners. It also highlighted her diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, as she is part of the UK leadership for Women@Goodwin. In 2022, Agar was named to International’s list of Private Equity Rising Stars, which honored Europe's ascending private equity lawyers.
The selection of this year’s Rising Stars was based on a variety of criteria, including: the quality of their client base; the scale, significance and complexity of their deals; their client feedback and general market reputation; the standing of their mentors; and any other examples of career success and innovation.
