Easdown Promoted at Turner Parkinson

Turner Parkinson, the Manchester-based independent business law firm, has confirmed the promotion of Corporate Director David Easdown to Partner.

Having joined the firm as an Associate in 2014, Easdown has now been promoted twice in two years after being promoted from Associate to Director in March 2015.

David is highly regarded in the M&A market having worked on numerous well-known transactions in the healthcare, logistics and technology sectors and is consistently ranked by Experian among the top 10 dealmakers in the North West. Highlights over the last 12 months include the sale of Inspirepac to Smurfit Kappa, the sale of £180m turnover Logson Group to W&R Barnett and a string of acquisitions in the pharmacy industry.

“In a short period of time, David has had a stellar impact on our business and the colleagues he works with day to day. Whether mentoring the younger members of the team or providing outstanding corporate finance input into the deals we work on, David is right up there as one of the very best people I have worked with over the last 20 years. As a business, our people are everything to us, and the contribution David has made to our growth and development has quite rightly been recognised and rewarded” commented TP’s Head of Corporate, James Sheridan. “For us, if you’re good enough you’re old enough, and David has a great opportunity to develop further in our business and to help us continue to deliver top class legal input to our mid-market clients.”
