The Insider South East Dealmakers award recognises the team that has facilitated the most exciting deals through due diligence, valuations and transaction service advice. The judges felt the team demonstrated real value-add and dexterity to react to, and deliver against, changing circumstances to keep the 'show on the road'.
The qualifying period for the award was the transaction services team’s most successful period to date. In the heart of the resurgence of the M&A market, the team provided services to an array of clients including large private equity funds, VC funds, banks and corporate acquirers. Deals have included advising on multinational private equity investment in scooter rental (Raine investment in Voi); supporting on the acquisition of the third largest crematoria provider in the UK (Darwin’s acquisition of Memoria); to assisting listed estate agents with their expansion strategy (Foxtons acquisition of D&G).
It is a closely contested award with nominees offering similar services, so to be named as team of the year is testament to the level of service provided and the strong working relationships established with clients.
