Charles Russell Speechlys ranked top four by deal value in the East and South East regions
Charles Russell Speechlys has been ranked 4th by value of deals in the South East for the first quarter of 2018, in the recent Experian MarketIQ report with the firm’s total deal value for deals in the South East being £1.243 bn. Other highly ranked firms included Clifford Chance (5th at £1.2 bn), Cleary Gottlieb Steen and Hamilton (1st at £1.8 bn) and Weil Gotshal & Manges (2nd at 1.5 bn).
The report, from essential market insight platform Experian MarketIQ, combines Corpfin's global M&A database with Companies House data and business, financial and risk databases. The analysis of activity looks at both legal and financial advisers by region – as well as in the South East, the firm was ranked 1st in the East of England by value of deals.
This ranking is testament to the Corporate team located in our thriving Guildford office (the only regional office in the South East of the top ranked firms) who have recently worked on transactions including the sale of Xstrahl to Risk Capital Partners , led by Senior Associate Rebecca Burford, and BGF’s investment into Revital, which showcased the firm’s London and Guildford Corporate teams collaborative capacity.
