Law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) has completed 22 deals so far in 2020, placing it first in the South West, according to Experian’s ‘M&A Review for the UK’. This was more than twice the number of deals as the firm placed second which completed eight.

In the ‘M&A Review for the UK’, published earlier this week HCR did more deals than all but one other legal firm in the whole of the UK.  It was place first in the South East with 50 per cent more deals completed than the next ranked firm and rose from third to second in the Midlands.

In London where client demand has led to a significant number of recent appointments the firm rose to 6th place, up from 11th in 2019.

Tim Ward, head of corporate in HCR’s Cheltenham office said: “I am delighted that the significant quantity of our corporate work for clients has been independently verified and is now reflected in these rankings.

Historically, we have tended not to shout about what we do, our focus is on doing a good job of delivering what our clients want, because their feedback is what really matters to us. However, the data does not lie and reflects everything I’ve seen since joining HCR in 2018 – more businesses by far in the South West, and many other regions, are choosing HCR for their corporate M&A work.”
