We are delighted to have been shown by Experian’s Market IQ database to be the most active law firm by deal volume in the North West for the first half of 2015, as we have been for the last three calendar years. We have also been reported to be the tenth most active law firm in the UK for the first half of 2015, climbing seven places. In what seems to be an increasingly buoyant M&A market since the election, our deal activity has been across a wide range of sectors including hotel and leisure, biotechnology, property and construction services and recruitment. We’re anticipating a series of further completions in a busy August and a strong second half of the year generally. We’re looking forward to continuing to support and deliver the strategic ambitions of our clients across the UK and internationally.
