Burges Salmon’s Corporate Finance team has been shortlisted for three awards at this year’s South West Dealmakers Awards, hosted by Insider. The firm has been nominated for ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’, ‘Deal of the Year’ and ‘Small Deal of the Year’.

The awards bring together lawyers, accountants, bankers and financiers across the South West to celebrate the top dealmakers and deals over the past year, recognising the wealth of talent in the region.

Burges Salmon’s Corporate practice continues to advise existing and new clients on a range of deals, remaining one of the most active legal advisers in the South West in the first half of 2020.

The nomination for ‘Deal of the Year’ is in respect of the firm’s work advising Prowrap – a Bristol-based specialist rewinder and manufacturer of cling film, aluminium foil and baking papers – on its investment from Longacre Group. With two entries on the ‘Small Deal of the Year’ shortlist, Burges Salmon has been recognised for its roles in Power Electrics Ltd’s acquisition of PE Generators from Turner & Co. Limited and in BGF’s £8m investment into Off-Piste Wines.

The ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’ nomination reflects the impressive roster of deals delivered over the 12 months to May 2020, including the £78.9 million recommended offer for SCISYS by CGI, the sale of pharma analytics company Nanopharm to AptarGroup, Inc. and the establishment of a social investment fund of £10 million for investment into Bristol.

Rupert Weston, Burges Salmon Corporate Finance partner, says: “We are very pleased to have secured three nominations at this year’s South West Dealmakers Awards and to be able to celebrate the hard work and success of those in the region’s dealmaking community.”
