Capital remains Wales’ most active M&A adviser

Between January and September 2021, Capital Law’s Corporate team advised on 43 disclosable deals for clients across the UK – including 18 in Wales.

This makes Capital Wales’ most active legal adviser (by volume) on mergers & acquisition deals, according to the latest report by Experian Market IQ.

The firm already topped the chart in 2020, as previously reported here. The combined worth of these 18 regional deals, £95m, also positions Capital as Wales’ fifth most active legal adviser by value.

The clients that Capital’s Corporate team has acted for come from a wide range of sectors – including health and social care, transport, energy, manufacturing, retail, tech, and telecoms. You can read more about the team’s recent deals here.

Tom Kelleher, Partner and Head of the Corporate team at Capital Law, said:

The market continues to be extremely busy with a number of sectors, such as healthcare and tech, delivering strong multiples/returns for sellers and investors. Private equity continues to feature significantly in the deals we have worked on, with investors still confident about the market and some fantastic businesses looking for investment to grow. A big thank you to all the clients whom we have been fortunate to support since the start of the year.”
