Napthens ranked for dealmaking

Regional law firm Napthens has been ranked in the top ten for North West law firms for the volume of corporate deals its experts have led.

A review by data experts Experian of the UK and Republic of Ireland’s mergers and acquisitions during the first quarter of 2017 has placed Napthens in the North West’s top ten for volume of deals.

The report reveals that 126 deals were announced for the region in the quarter, worth a total of £3.2billion.

It reports: ‘In a region where overall value figures are susceptible to drastic fluctuations from quarter to quarter, the North West performed well and the headline figure remains comfortably above the average recorded over the past several years.”

Napthens is highlighted at number seven in the top ten, up from 25, after the firm was involved in five deals.

Richard Robinson, Napthens’ head of Corporate, said: “This report shows the strength of our regional economy and highlights some of the great work being done here – by both businesses and their advisors.

“We have a strong corporate and commercial team at Napthens, and being ranked alongside a host of well-known national practices shows that Napthens can compete in style with the large firms from Manchester and Liverpool when advising on transactions.”
