Welcome to our regular deal round-up.

Whilst the US-China trade stand-offs, Brexit paralysis, and now concerns over Iran destabilising the global economy clearly aren’t helping the UK M&A market, the economic fundamentals remain strong and we have record levels of work in progress at SCCF. Just the resolution of the parliamentary stalemate over Brexit, or a deal (or no deal) with the EU will, I suspect, ease concerns, facilitate decision-making and so accelerate the pace of the deals we are working on.

The UK’s economic and mental resilience, and our workload, inspires confidence that the next 12 months will see growth in M&A – so much so that we have recently welcomed Cameron Robertson as an ICAEW trainee into the Derby CF team and appointed a trainee for 2020.
