2018 Deals
a year in review




Matthew Martin
London Head - Corporate

National Head - Corporate


Despite continuing global political and economic uncertainties, 2018 was another successful year for Penningtons Manches' corporate team.

We have seen a 50% increase in the volume of transactions completed compared to 2017, with management buyouts and restructuring deals on the rise. Highlighting the strength of the firm’s sector focus, nearly half of the transactions were in the technology and life sciences sectors.

Continuing the trend from the previous year, foreign direct investment is strong - with a weak sterling and significant amounts of private equity cash boosting investment opportunities.
