Corporate deals table

Our team is enjoying an extremely busy 2017, after a 2016 in which we recorded more than 100 deals for the third year in succession. As you can see from the table below, we advise on every type of transaction you could imagine throughout the corporate arena, from entry level to significant mergers and acquisitions. Our activity also spanned Scotland's key sectors, with family-owned businesses, healthcare, property and the food, leisure and hospitality industries particularly prominent.
