Corporate Finance team at asb law has an exceptional 2013

The Corporate Finance Team at asb law has had an exceptional 2013, building on its strong performance in 2012 including winning the Insider Dealmakers Corporate Law Firm of the Year Award.


Helen Mead continues to lead the team from strength to strength with the team’s closure rates showing a strong improvement in the market and achieving record-breaking half year figures against target.

With transaction numbers at a very healthy level and a good strong pipeline we are looking forward to 2014 with confidence.

A couple of particular highlights of the year for us include acting for Mobeus Private Equity supporting the £11m MBO of Veritek Global Limited (read the press release here), acting on the MBO of River Marketing (read the press release here) and advising on the IPO of EU Supply Plc on its admission to AIM, which had some of our team literally working around the clock to ensure tight deadlines were met.
