Hazlewoods named as a top 10 merger and acquisition adviser

Hazlewoods Corporate Finance team is leading the way by being listed as a top 10 UK adviser in the latest Experian Mergers & Acquisitions report.

The Cheltenham-based firm is ranked second in the South West and rose eight places in the national rankings to be named the sixth most active adviser in the UK.

The annual report also placed Hazlewoods number three in the Midlands, fifth in London and in the top ten in the North West, South East, East of England and Yorkshire and Humber.

Corporate finance partner, Paul Fussell, said: "We are delighted with our strong performance in all regions, which underscores our reputation for providing quality, innovative solutions and service.

"COVID-19 caused uncertainty for many companies, and although deals in certain sectors were put on hold, other sectors continued with buy and build strategies.

"By the end of the year we saw a strong recovery in the M&A landscape, with deal volumes bouncing back to pre-pandemic levels, helped in part by sellers fearing possible changes in capital gains tax rules ahead of the March Budget.

"The outlook for 2021 is already looking strong."

Hazlewoods advised on 133 completed deals in 2020, with a total value of more than £763 million.

The team also saw a continuous volume of deals in key sector specialisms including veterinary and health and care, as well as the general market.

Services provided included advice on acquisitions, disposals, management buyouts and due diligence assignments.
