Independent research by Experian has identified Foot Anstey's corporate team as the most active, by volume, legal adviser in the South West.
The Corporate team at Foot Anstey tops the South West Legal Advisers table with 35 transactions completed, advising on a range of transactions for a wide variety of businesses. The firm also features in the UK wide Legal Adviser League Table Top 20.
The league tables recently published by Experian show overall deal volumes in the South West increased at a faster rate (up to 436 deals from 409 in 2013) in the SW than in the UK overall. Whilst this only includes those deals which are made public by the company or advisers involved it is a reflection of the companies and advisers in the region.
The Foot Anstey team is led by Chris Worrell who commented: “We are delighted to have our efforts recognised in this independent review. This has been a year of significant growth and development for the team, we have focused on working closely with our clients and the wider corporate finance community in order to continually develop and deliver an effective and efficient service across the region.”
The Foot Anstey team regularly features highly in independent rankings; it has previously topped the Experian Corpfin Deal Review and Advisor League table and was also shortlisted for Corporate Law Firm of the Year at the SW Business Insider Dealmakers Awards 2014 and UK Law Firm of the Year at the Legal Week British Law Firm Awards 2014.
