Four deals in four weeks

Legal firm Grant Thornton's transaction advisory services team had a multi-million 4x4 summer.

They stood on the gas pedal to complete four deals, worth together about £90m, in just four weeks.

All four deals were carried out in the north of England and involved three of the regions leading private equity providers.

The deals spanned a range of sectors including specialist recruitment, travel management, specialist printing and furniture manufacturing.

Partner Will Oxley, who leads DNCC member Grant Thornton’s transaction advisory services team across the north of England and is practice leader for Grant Thornton’s Leeds office, said: “We were able to mobilise our sector specialists, as well as our international colleagues in several countries, to advise on these transactions."

Jonathan Steed, director in transaction advisory services, said: "It was satisfying to be able to support three different private equity providers investing in leading, innovative businesses across the North.

“Private Equity is one of our key specialisms and it is particularly pleasing to have dealt with the challenges of these and other transactions in a single month."
