1 Corporate finance deals 2014

2 Corporate finance deals was an encouraging year for the deals market, with confidence slowly but surely returning. Whilst private equity continued to drive a number of deals, we have also seen an increase in mid-market transactional activity as well as more companies turning to the stock exchange as a source of investment. Whilst the UK s recovery has been driven primarily by the services sector, there has also been positive news over the past year from the construction and manufacturing sectors. The global economic resurgence and lower interest rates have all contributed to a healthier national picture and, with the uncertainty around the Scottish referendum now behind us, the business landscape for 2015 looks promising. With a general election on the horizon there s sure to be residual uncertainty but the general sentiment is one of cautious optimism for the year ahead. Gateley s Corporate and Banking & Finance teams experienced an increase in transactional activity during The upturn in the market enabled us to invest further in our teams and we made a number of new Corporate and Banking & Finance team hires. In addition, we helped our clients deliver on more than 250 significant deals, with a combined value in excess of 1.8 billion. Many of these are featured in this deal sheet. The volume of deals we advised on led to us once again dominating the Experian Corpfin M&A Advisor League Tables. In 2014 we ranked in the top three nationally and first place in the Midlands, whilst in the Yorkshire and Humber league table, our Leeds Corporate team featured in the top 10. This follows a successful first year for the team operating in the corporate market under the leadership of partner, Nick Emmerson. Further recognition for our regional teams came when we were awarded 2014 Law Firm of the Year by the Birmingham Law Society and Legal Team of the Year at the 2014 East Midlands Insider Dealmakers Dinner. We remain dedicated to delivering the highest quality services grounded in sound commercial judgment and an in-depth understanding of our clients' markets. Specialist knowledge delivered with passion by highly motivated people will continue to be the key to our success and client care remains at the core of everything we do. Our clients tell us that having Gateley on board as their legal adviser helps make a difference to the success of their business. To find out how we can help you succeed, contact any of the Corporate or Banking & Finance partners.
