Double Awards Success for Mincoffs Solicitors

Article excerpt

MINCOFFS Solicitors' corporate team has enjoyed double award success recently. The firm was delighted to be named Corporate Law Team of the Year at the Northern Law Awards ceremony on Thursday, June 8, at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton.

Mincoffs' corporate team was also recently recognised in the 10th Annual International M&A Advisor Awards, in which they received the 'Industrials Deal of the Year' award for their involvement in the sale of Sheffield-based Cooper & Turner to the US-based investment firm the Watermill Group.

During 2017, the corporate team at Mincoffs delivered 56 transactions for their clients, with an aggregate deal value of circa PS400m.

Whilst smaller in size than some corporate teams in the North East, the team - comprising six lawyers, including three partners - has a huge amount of experience. Indeed, the team was ranked as second most active adviser on North East transactions by information services giant Experian for 2017. Some of the deals the team worked on in 2017 include: | Private equity investment into engineering consultancy practice Parsons Group and a related acquisition; | Extensions to the Cairn Groups' banking facilities and related transactions; | Disposal of the entire issued share capital of Ashchem, the largest independent pharmacy chain in the North at that time; | Disposal of the Litterboss group, a provider of ground clearance and similar services, to Ground Control (an industry consolidator) | Lugano Group's mezzanine finance arrangements with Matterhorn Capital and Topland Jupiter. …
