Business law firm DWF has announced that its Corporate team achieved, in the half year to June 2013, an aggregate deal value of more than £830m for its corporate transactions. The figures are part of global information services company Corpfin Experian’s deals database.
The firm has seen an increase in the value of deals it has advised on since January, having acted for a series of high profile, blue-chip companies over the past six months. These include the management buyout (MBO) of Grace Cole, advising Acenta Steel Holdings on the acquisition of the equity held by Endless LLP, the MBO of Boutinot, the sale of kidsunlimited and the placing of shares in AIM-quoted company, Microsaic Systems plc (MSYS).
Commenting on the results, Stephen Houston (pictured), National Head of DWF’s Corporate Team, said: “This pleasing result can be attributed to the tenacity of the team and our fresh and innovative approach to client services. We have a first rate team and clients tell us they find us commercially astute and very easy to work with – key factors that keep clients returning to us.”
As part of Corpfin Experian’s report, DWF was ranked the second most deal-active law firm in the UK.
