5 November 2019

Browne Jacobson has enhanced its reputation as one of the country’s leading M&A advisers according to the latest rankings data from Experian.

In Experian’s M & A Review (YTD 2019) the firm is ranked the UK’s 13th most active dealmaker after completing 60 deals between January and October 2019. The firm also improved its ranking in the Midlands (2nd) and in the South East where it was ranked 9th most active M&A adviser, a rise of 11 places on the first six months of 2019. The team maintained its previous top 5 ranking in Scotland. 

It has been a successful year for the firm’s corporate finance team after it acted on a number of high profile, award winning deals including  the sale of Bridge Farm Group to Canadian cannabis firm Sundial Growers and LDC’s investment in Littlefish which won International Deal of the Year and SME Deal of the Year respectively at this year’s Insider Dealmakers (Midlands). In the East Midlands the team acted on the Palatine Private Equity backed secondary buyout of Derbyshire based CET UK which picked up the Deal of the Year at Dealmakers.
