Hazlewoods Corporate Finance team shortlisted for the Business Leader Awards 2022

Published: Friday 5 August 2022

Hazlewoods Corporate Finance team – winners of Advisory Firm of the Year at the Business Leaders Awards 2021 – are thrilled to be named as finalists again in 2022.

The team are vying to keep their crown when the awards are presented at a black-tie dinner in Bristol in September.

Hosted by stand-up comedian Patrick Kielty, six organisations will compete for the coveted title.

Paul Fussell, Corporate Finance Partner at Hazlewoods, said: “We are delighted to be in the running for this sought-after award for the second consecutive year; it reflects our ambition and the team’s hard work and dedication."

“This award not only recognises the outstanding service we offer to our clients, but also our support of the local Gloucestershire community, (including charitable work and fundraising), and our commitment to staff well-being; two areas we are delighted to focus on.”

Sam Clark, Head of Awards Sponsorship for Business Leader, offered his support to Hazlewoods.

He said: “I would like to congratulate you on this incredible achievement, considering there were over 250 entries overseen by our judging panel.”

Last year was a stellar year for the Corporate Finance team, who completed 170 transactions worth more than £1.07 billion – the best set of results in the Company’s 100-year history.

Hazlewoods was also the fifth most active adviser in the UK according to Experian, demonstrating the impressive countrywide reach of the Gloucestershire-based team.

As a result of our success, and the increasing number of large and complex projects undertaken by the firm, our Corporate Finance team has expanded and comprises more than 40 professionals including five partners.

And the outlook for 2022 continues to look strong, with a raft of transactions in the pipeline for the Corporate Finance team, who provide a range of services including advice on acquisitions, disposals, management buyouts and due diligence assignments. Alongside the wider market, the team also specialise in specific sectors, including veterinary, healthcare, dental, pharmacy, insurance and innovation and technology.
