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 and contacts whom we have been fortunate to work with throughout the year.
