Corporate activity geared up for new decade

28 Jan 2020

There has been a marked increase in confidence and pacing in January, suggesting the election result has provided renewed confidence we were all looking for.

We are starting some quality new deals and have a series of planned completions in January/February, meaning the team are busy.

New opportunities and deals are being driven by active sector teams in Travel/Aviation,  Manufacturing and the Wine industry.  Deals in the last quarter of 2019 highlighted continued consolidation in financial services and insurance broking.  Overseas buyers continue to be active, buying quality assets in the UK.

We were delighted to mark the end of the decade being shortlisted in three categories for the forthcoming Insider South East Dealmaker Awards, which is a real testament to our teamwork:
  • Corporate Law Firm of the year
  • Deal of the Year (over £10m; Chandlers)
  • Lawyer of the Year (Abigail Owen)
A selection of deals that completed in the tail-end of 2019 can be seen below.
