Confidence is high, says lawyer
Burness Paull says deal-making remains buoyant
The practice has completed close to 50 corporate deals worth more than £2.5 billion in the last three months.
The firm advised long-standing client BlueGem, owner of iconic fashion brand Liberty, in a deal that saw it team up with Jack Wills founder Pete Williams in a multi-million pound buyout of the British heritage-inspired fashion chain.
Burness Paull also represented the buyer of Dobbies Garden Centres as well as Kings Park Capital on investments in 7 Bone Restaurants and Just Go! Holidays.
It advised Chase Search & Selection, the pharmaceutical recruitment company, on the investment by Vespa Capital.
Chris Gotts (pictured), partner and head of corporate finance at Burness Paull, said: “We are seeing confidence in the deal making community, evidenced by the relatively high number of private equity driven deals that we have recently completed.”
