Our multi award winning Corporate Finance division were named SME Advisory Team of the Year 2018 at the Midlands Insider Dealmaker awards on Thursday 13th September.
Our team, who have completed several notable landmark deals in the last 12 months, beat off six contenders to walk away with the award after securing the same award in the East Midlands just 4 months ago.
This is the first time we have won the coveted award in both the East Midlands and West Midlands during the same year, and the third time we have been named SME Advisory Team of the Year since 2016.
John Farnsworth, Head of Corporate Finance commented: “We are delighted that our work and advisory services have been recognized on such a prestigious stage. The Insider awards champion outstanding achievements by professional M&A advisors across the region, so to win SME Advisory Team of the Year in both the East and West Midlands in the same year is a testament to the strength of our team.”
The awards follow our Corporate Finance’s most successful year yet, with a record breaking 35 deals completed in 2017 – a hike from the previous year’s total of 28. This has propelled us into new territory, placing us amongst multinational advisors in the top 10 rankings of the Experian Midlands deal leagues.
Darren Hodson, Corporate Finance Partner based in our Birmingham office comments “I am thrilled that the market place is recognizing the quality of our team and the deals we are completing. The West Midlands in particular is a competitive market place for professional services firms and it’s good to be recognized as one of the leading teams in the region.”
