Midlands law firm Wright Hassall has completed a major deals milestone, having acted on transactions totalling more than £232 million in the last year.

The Leamington firm’s 20-strong corporate team represented companies, banks and borrowers on a range of acquisitions, sales, MBOs, investment and refinancing transactions involving organisations across the UK.

Major transactions include the sale of manufacturer Camloc Motion Control, investment into motor leasing specialist XL Cars, along with the sale of care homes and investment into a major packaging company.

Robert Lee, Head of Corporate at Wright Hassall, said: “To complete deals in excess of £232 million is extremely positive.

“Deals activity has been across a wide range of sectors and has seen us act on many sizeable transactions and the strong relationship we have with banks and investment companies has been key in driving the increased level of deals.

“The demand for finance to enable businesses to expand through growth and acquisition has continued to gather pace into this year, which is very encouraging, and we look forward to building on this momentum in the year ahead.”

Wright Hassall has expanded its senior team across the firm following strong growth. The firm now employs nearly 300 staff, including 101 lawyers and 47 partners.
