Expert Opinion
“Consolidating our national position in the top four is a tremendous achievement. Our merger with Thomas Eggar has provided a significant boost to the size of our corporate offering and allows us to expand our UK footprint. It has complemented our existing team’s expertise whilst adding a number of specialist services which has given us greater strength in depth.

“We’ve seen a significant amount of economic and political uncertainty over the last few months however the levels of M&A activity has remained steady.

“Although there could be a reduction in deal volumes following the decision to leave the EU, it is vital that businesses take positive steps to prepare. We are looking to work closely with our clients and are committed to ensuring that businesses are able to seize and take advantage of new opportunities that present themselves in the future.”
