transaction update - spring / summer 2016

9 June 2016

The first half of 2016 has been an incredibly busy period for our Corporate and Banking teams who have advised on a whole range of transactions in a variety of sectors. This period saw us not only named by Experian as one of the UK's Top 20 leading dealmakers for the first three months of 2016 but also enabled our corporate finance team to pick up the coveted ‘Legal Team of the Year’ award at the Insider East Midlands Dealmakers Awards in May 2016.

Here are a selection of the deals we have been involved in which we are proud to say also includes the Insider East Midlands Dealmakers Awards ‘Deal of the Year’ where we acted for PCT Healthcare on its £80m acquisition of WR Evans (Chemist).
