Thursfields corporate team set for record year as deals in first six months of financial year top £100m plus
The corporate team at Thursfields has helped close deals totalling over £100 million in the first six months of its financial year – almost as much as it achieved in the whole of its last financial year.
Gareth Burge, director and head of corporate, said: “The team has had a great start to the financial year, picking up a number of significant buy and sell side instructions for our SME and investor client base. Despite economic uncertainty, the outlook is still looking positive, with a large number of deals in the pipeline.”
“As a team, we are delighted to have helped so many deals over the line.”
In the 12 months to end of June 2021, Thursfields’ corporate team advised on a record of over £125 million worth of deals, but 2022 is now well on target to smash their previous best.
The team was recently ranked by Experian as one of the top 10 most active legal advisers in the Midlands M&A market, alongside the national players, and features highly in this week’s Legal 500 rankings for corporate.
A selection of the deals completed in the first half of 2022 include Thursfields advising the shareholders of Demma Group on their sale to Swedish private equity backed Nordomatic Group, the shareholders of Compco Fire on their sale to Irish private equity backed Writech and Questgates on several acquisitions.
Other deals include advising on the sales of Wiper Blades to AIM-listed Vertu Motors plc, PJM Properties to FTSE 250 listed LondonMetric Property plc and Network Catering Engineers to Airdale Group.
