Leading law firm, Harrison Clark, confirms its continued growth in its business services department as the firm releases its half-year figures.
The Solicitors has provided the expert legal services for a significant number of major transactions from December 2011 to May 2012, highlighting the firm’s authority within the business community.
The continually growing, 14-strong team of corporate legal specialists at Harrison Clark, which has offices in Worcester, Cheltenham, Ross and Hereford, completed a record 73 transactions – worth more than £98 million – over the six-month period.
The strong 2012 results demonstrate yet again the breadth of Harrison Clark’s size and expertise within its business services department. Transactions have included numerous acquisitions, disposals and refinancing deals, including acting for Hereford company Alexander and Duncan Ltd in its merger with Chris Tallis Farm Machinery Ltd and the acquisition of an expert witness business on behalf of international social care services providers Core Assets Group, headquartered in Bromsgrove.
Rod Thomas, Harrison Clark’s managing partner and head of business services said: “Whilst the overall economic climate remains highly uncertain, it is apparent that many companies have significant cash reserves and are willing and able to undertake transactions if the right opportunity arises. Despite everything, there remains a strong appetite by many companies to acquire businesses that strategically fit with their own.”
Whether acting for businesses looking for support across restructuring, acquisitions, disposals, management buy-outs, joint ventures or incorporations, Harrison Clark has the expertise to assist in any area of corporate law. This capability sets Harrison Clark apart from all other law firms between Birmingham and Bristol.
