M&A adviser rankings announced

5th November 2021

We have been ranked by Experian as one of the most active legal advisers in Yorkshire.

The Experian IQ report looks at the activity of legal and financial advisers in Yorkshire and the Humber’s M&A sector, as well as the fortunes of the dealmaking sector during the period.

“We are delighted to feature so prominently once again in the list of most active advisers in the region.  The team continue to go above and beyond to deliver exceptional results and best in class service for our clients.  The pipeline for the final quarter of 2021 and into 2022 remains strong and we look forward to continuing to support our clients to achieve their strategic  M&A objectives.” Steven Millward, partner.

The corporate team has advised on over 20 transactions in the year to date, including Manning Stainton’s acquisition of Ryder and Dutton and  Ringways’ acquisition by DM Keith.

“The speed at which mergers and acquisitions activity has bounced back from last year’s COVID-related uncertainty – both on a domestic and global level – has been striking, with an improving economic forecast allied with the success of the vaccine rollout helping confidence quickly return to the market. In the UK, our latest set of figures paint a positive picture, with deal activity up sharply across a range of metrics.

The pandemic has accelerated an existing shift towards digital activities in the economy and the rush to future-proof has driven a rush of tech deals in 2021. Meanwhile private equity interest in UK businesses has never been greater, with global investors increasingly positive towards the UK market, and we’ve seen buyouts surge this year – along with publicly-traded companies taken private from the Stock Exchange in record numbers.” Jane Turner, research manager, Experian MarketIQ
