Commenting, Graham Cunning, Head of Corporate Finance with Campbell Dallas said: “We finished 2016 on a high and started off 2017 at a similar level with a variety of high profile and interesting deals.  The team has not only advised on the deal structures, but also on tax and VAT issues, which makes for complex and interesting assignments.

He added: “Despite the unexpected events of 2016 and the continuing political and economic uncertainty, the environment for deal making remains favourable, so it is still a good time to sell or for investment, which augurs well for the remainder of the year”.
