Turner Parkinson Deals Strength In First Half of 2014

The Corporate team at business law firm Turner Parkinson continue to rank highly in North West deal tables, following a strong first half of 2014.

Having been consistently ranked as one of top three most active advisory teams for the last three years, the team once again has the North West’s most active individual team members, with the top three performers for 2014 YTD, a position held for the last 18 months. Robin Hastings once again tops the list.

The strong performance for 2014 to date can be put down in part to a growing client base with an appetite to embrace increasingly positive market conditions.  The other factor at play is the seismic shift in focus of Turner Parkinson’s competitors’ focus and ambitions as they continue to become more institutional and to invest in London and overseas markets. Allied with clients looking for relationship-driven legal services at a sensible price, we are seeing the Turner Parkinson offering very well placed for the needs of North West businesses.

Deal volumes grew in the Healthcare and TMT sectors, with consolidation key in both Recruitment and Travel sectors in which the team is active.  

James Sheridan, who heads Turner Parkinson’s Corporate team, commented “I am delighted with our repeated and consistent success which is down to the calibre and ambition of the clients we advise and the top quality service we offer.  Compared to many of our competitors, we have a small team, but today’s business climate combined with our ability to provide big firm quality is presenting us with some good growth opportunities. We are growing our team and the offering of the firm as a whole. The team recently completed five £5m+ deals in five weeks over June and our most recent addition, David Easdown, has supported our growth with additional client wins, whilst ranking second in the region individually for deals completed”.
