BPE Solicitors’ Corporate Team is celebrating being shortlisted for two awards in the Insider South West Dealmakers Awards for the second year running. The Cheltenham based law firm is up against lawyers, accountants, bankers and financiers from across the South West.
The acquisition of Tysoe Holdings and its subsidiary S. Tysoe Installations (Tysoe Group) by longstanding client, The P & M Group, led by Adam Kean, is shortlisted for Small Deal of the Year. This was a major acquisition for The P & M Group, boosting its already significant business offering in the South West as experts in cold room installations and food processing facilities.
BPE’s work with Partners& earned the team its second shortlisting in the Buy to Build category. Adam Kean advised Partners& on five acquisitions within a 12 month period as well as a significant further investment, all of which have continued the organisation’s growth in the insurance brokerage market and have created a dynamic provider in the national market.
Adam Kean (Partner) led the BPE team in advising The P & M Group and Partners& on these matters, along with support from Angharad Doyle (Associate), Rupert Parker, Jodele McConnachie (Solicitors) and Chelsea Silsby (Legal Assistant).
Adam Kean said: “These shortlistings are very exciting and I am extremely proud of the team’s work over the past twelve months of which these nominations are worthy recognition. We have fantastic clients and it’s a pleasure to work closely with them as trusted advisers as they continue with their growth strategies. We’re looking forward to the awards ceremony in September and wish every nominated firm good luck”.
With more than 70 lawyers and 130 staff in total, BPE works with clients across wide-ranging sectors and at every level of industry; from large multi-nationals, regional entrepreneurial SMEs and start-ups to private clients.
Senior Partner, John Workman, said: “Being shortlisted for two awards is a big achievement, especially considering the challenges businesses have faced over the last 14 months. The shortlistings are a testament to the strength and depth within our Corporate team and the complexity of deals we advise on and I’m delighted that our team is being recognised by Insider”.
