Napthens is leading the way in the north west’s mergers and acquisition (M&A) sector, after being named by Experian Market IQ as the most active legal adviser during the first nine months of 2023.

The corporate team has worked on the completion of an impressive 28 deals, including the recent acquisition of River Marine Fuels by our client, Standard Fuel Oils.

Throughout 2023 Napthens’ corporate team has consistently been ranked as one of the most active advisers in the north west by Experian Market IQ.

Keith Melling, partner and head of corporate, said of the news: “We have seen lots of transactional activity during the last nine months notwithstanding interest rate rises and inflationary pressures.

“The team continues to recruit the best people to support our clients as we look to grow our corporate finance activity across the region and beyond.

“We feel confident that there are still good opportunities for mergers and acquisitions in the new year and as a team we expect to be busy into the first half of 2024.

“As always, we appreciate everyone’s assistance that has helped us deliver on our clients’ objectives.”
