UK top-200 law firm Keebles LLP completed more than 20 deals in just two weeks during February, as the business world continues to overcome the challenges caused by the pandemic.
The high-profile transactions saw the corporate department at Keebles bring in deals worth £135m including advising the management of Birmingham-based fire and security services provider CCSS as it was acquired by EA-RS Fire Group.
Keebles, which has offices in Sheffield, Doncaster and Leeds, also advised on deals across the recruitment, retail, real estate, logistics, healthcare, engineering and financial services sectors.
Having already completed a high number of deals in 2021, the award-winning team, headed by Keebles Partner Matt Ainsworth, is predicting another strong year.
Matt said: “We have seen a general spike in deal flow over the last few months in the wake of uncertainties around the Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Our team has risen to the challenges of this demanding period which comes on the back of a strong 2020 in which we completed more than £250m of private equity, M&A and fundraising deals and is a positive start to 2021.
“With the UK now expected to begin recovering from the effects of the pandemic, we are confident that the demand for our services will continue and 2021 will be another successful year for our continued growth.”
The corporate department’s sector expertise includes advanced manufacturing, technology, and hospitality.
With offices in Sheffield, Doncaster and Leeds, Keebles is regarded as a key player by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides.
