Addleshaw Goddard has been awarded the coveted Legal Team of the Year accolade at The Business Desk North West Rainmaker Awards for the fourth consecutive year, a true testament to the firm's position as the region's top legal advisers on corporate finance transactions. 

Voted on by over 100 members of the NW Corporate Finance  Community, the Firm were also recognised for their involvement in a number of high profile deals across the region including: 

JD Sport's acquisition of The Finish Line, which took home the Public Markets and International awards, Equistone Partners Europe's sale of Concept Life Sciences, which was presented with the Private Equity Exit award, and Inflexion's investment in Radius Payments Solutions, which received M&A Deal of the Year.

Addleshaw Goddard's Manchester corporate team, is the largest team in the region and has already experienced a successful start to 2018, having advised on £2bn worth of deals in the first quarter of the year alone. The firm was also recently ranked by Experian as the most active legal adviser for deals across the North West.

Andrew Green, PE Partner at Addleshaw Goddard, comments: "Winning this award for the fourth year is  a fantastic accolade and reinforces our reputation as one of the North's most active legal advisers. 

"Having the largest Corporate, Private Equity and Banking teams in the region, means we are able to continue to handle large-scale, high-profile transactions for the region's top businesses. Despite uncertainty over Brexit market, we expect to see a number of significant deals coming to fruition this year. The size of these deals is not only positive for our pipeline but also for the local market."
