Mills & Reeve’s corporate M&A team celebrates national recognition

Mills & Reeve has featured once again in the top 10 in Experian’s end of year rankings as the 8th most active legal advisor for M&A in the UK.

The national ranking is for the number of deals the team advised on during 2023, which is submitted to Experian's M&A (mergers and acquisitions) review.

Alongside their continued national success, the firm also achieved recognition in regional rankings. In the eastern region the firm was ranked 4th which follows the team scooping the International Deal and the Deal of The Year (sub £10m) awards at the Central & East of England Dealmakers Awards 2023.

The South East region also ranked in the top 10 in 8th place and an impressive new ranking for Yorkshire and Humber in 6th place.

James Hunter, head of corporate at Mills & Reeve, said: “To be consistently in the top 10 in the UK is a terrific achievement for us, and credit to our colleagues across our corporate team as well as our strong network of friends in the corporate finance and M&A communities.

“Despite the economy slipping back into recession and many difficult headwinds, it has been another busy and successful year for many of our clients, including advising Foresight on its multi-million-pound investment into Cambrionix at the start of 2023, advising Optalysys on a £21m Series A funding round to develop its pioneering technology and advising shareholders of Antser Group on its sale to a new company backed by YFM Equity Partners, among many many others”
