Hazlewoods Corporate Finance team has been named a ‘Corporate Advisory Team of the Year’ finalist at Insider’s 2023 South West Dealmakers Awards.
With 11 award categories up for grabs, Insider brought together a group of independent regional experts to analyse and debate more than 100 entries which cover deals from the past 12 months.
2022 was a bumper year for M&A activity in the region and a record-breaking year for Hazlewoods, where we were named a Top 10 UK Adviser, ranked 2nd in the south west, by Experian.
Our Corporate Finance team completed 165 deals worth £1.5 billion last year – a 42.6% increase on 2021 deal value – and 25% of the transactions were south west based.
Hazlewoods Partner, Paul Fussell, said: “This recognition suitably reflects the team’s sterling achievements and dedication throughout last year.
“Our expertise within the general market and sector specialisms, combined with our innovative approach, enables us to effectively take on increasingly large, complex and high-value projects.”
James Whittaker, Associate Partner, added: “These results clearly demonstrate the confidence that is placed in us to deliver a quality service - we are proud to support businesses within the south west and beyond.”
Winners of the Dealmakers Awards will be revealed at a black-tie awards dinner, hosted at Bristol Marriott City Centre Hotel on Thursday 29 June 2023.
