Corporate deals table

Our team is enjoying a busy start to 2018, after an extremely busy 2017 in which we recorded more than 100 deals for the fourth 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.
