Browne Jacobson wins prestigious Private Equity award

13 September 2021

Browne Jacobson’s private equity team is celebrating after being named as ‘Regional Legal Adviser of the Year’ at the European Private Equity Awards.

The prestigious awards, which are now in their 20th year, are highly regarded by the corporate finance and banking sectors, recognising the best private equity advisers throughout Europe.

The firm’s private equity team is part of the wider corporate finance practice which is ranked by Experian as one of the country’s leading corporate finance teams with over 30 corporate and banking & finance expert lawyers delivering complex layered corporate and banking transactions.

Over the last 12 months the team has delivered triple-digit fee growth on its completed transactions. In 2020, the team advised the shareholders on the PAI Partners backed tertiary buyout of Addo Food Group (Addo) in a transaction considered one of the UK food sectors’ most high-profile deals of the year, together with a number of mid-market transactions for Palatine Private Equity, LDC, NorthEdge and Apiary Capital amongst others.

Gareth Davies, private equity team partner at Browne Jacobson commented:

“I am delighted that we have won this key industry award. Despite the Pandemic, we continued to reinforce our stellar reputation in the PE market as dynamic deal makers, delivering quality, strategic advice on an impressive volume of complex and high value PE transactions. This award cements that and clearly demonstrates how we have differentiated our offer to other private equity advisers.”
