2021 success for Foot Anstey’s Corporate team

The Corporate team at national law firm Foot Anstey LLP is celebrating a successful year, having seen a rise in demand and deal completions throughout 2021.

Foot Anstey's Corporate team has provided legal advice on sector leading deals in 2021.

The team's work for Entrepreneurial Private Companies (EPC) was a key highlight of 2021. One such success was the advice we offered to the shareholders on the sale of Flynn Group Limited to M&J Evans. The combination of Flynn and M&J Evans will expand the enlarged group's geographical footprint into the South West bringing with it Flynn's proven management team and strong client relationships.

Additionally, the team was also instructed by Simply Conveyancing (backed by private equity firm Livingbridge, with whom Foot Anstey has a longstanding relationship) on the acquisition of Peterborough-based Pirie Palmann Holdings Limited. This deal was part of an ambitious growth drive that will see Simply Conveyancing become one of the largest conveyancing practices in the UK.

Matt Stoate, Head of Corporate and Private Equity, at Foot Anstey said: “The Corporate Team has continued to deliver smooth transactions and exceptional results throughout 2021 and we look forward to seeing the activity increase further in 2022.

"We've thoroughly enjoyed supporting shareholders and business owners achieve their goals in 2021, as well as helping to bolster the South West region's corporate activity. 2022 is off to a busy start, and the year ahead is already looking very busy for our team, which is why we are currently looking to attract exciting new talent to help us continue to bring excellence and innovation to our clients."
