Growth in corporate deals for Harrison Drury

Harrison Drury has reported a significant upturn in corporate activity and is confident about growing its deals pipeline further in the rest of 2018.

David Filmer, head of the corporate team at Harrison Drury, said: “There are a number of factors behind this increase. I believe the underlying confidence and strength in the economy, despite obvious uncertainties, is one of those. There’s also an appetite from lenders and investors to get deals done.

“From our own point of view, we’ve built on the successes of last year. Our reputation for the quality of our corporate work, and ability to handle more complex transactions, is growing. We’re picking up higher value work as a result and our deals pipeline looks healthy.

“Whatever stage the business cycle is at, there’s always going to be a need for growth and circumstances which require businesses to be bought and sold. We have some great clients doing exciting things, which will lead to more opportunities.”
