Double shortlisting in Insider’s South West Dealmakers Awards for BPE Solicitors

The Corporate team at Cheltenham-based BPE Solicitors is celebrating being shortlisted for two awards at Insider’s annual South West Dealmakers Awards for a third year in a row. The awards celebrate the standout deals in the region over the past 12 months, across the corporate finance and dealmaking community.

The acquisition of TechTeam Group by Cheltenham-based BPE client, Bamboo Technology Group, is shortlisted for Small Deal of the Year. The acquisition, overseen by Adam Kean (Corporate Partner), has expanded Bamboo’s expertise, customer base and regional footprint in managed services provision and supports its focus on education and employment in the sector.

The second shortlisting is in the Medium Deal of the Year category for the Corporate team’s work for the shareholders of DAEL Ventures on the sale of the company to Mitie Group plc in an acquisition worth £15 million. Corporate Partner and Team Leader, Louise Grzasko, led the transaction which saw DAEL Ventures and its subsidiaries join the newly created Mitie Telecoms division.

Adam commented “We are thrilled to be shortlisted again this year.  The small and medium deals categories have some tough competition and we wish everyone luck”.

Louise continued “Having transactions like these shortlisted is a brilliant showcase of the strength and depth we have in the Corporate team at BPE and I am incredibly proud of the team’s work – on these deals and others – over the last 12 months”.  

Senior Partner, John Workman, added “To be continually recognised in these awards, and to be shortlisted twice this year, is a big achievement. The Corporate team consistently delivers for its clients and these short listings are another example of that”.
