We are celebrating a busy and successful end to 2016 after our Commercial team closed out a range of business acquisitions in December alone.

The team completed three acquisitions before close of play on New Year’s Eve, including a strategic expansion acquisition for a specialist outdoor-gear wholesaler, the management buy-out of an international trader and settlement of a family company dispute.

In the opening weeks of 2017 the Commercial team have finalised another business sale in the leisure sector, and are continuing to work on a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions, so 2017 looks set to be another busy one for the team.

Corporate Partner Jennifer Grabowski said: “The team has advised on a number of complex deals throughout the year, and December was no exception.  As a Lancaster-based firm, we think the variety and value of the deals we completed in 2016 reflects just how much the region is thriving.  Many of our clients have strong ties to Lancashire and Cumbria, so the level of activity we’ve seen is, we feel, a great indicator of the continued economic strength of the region.”

As a reflection of the growth in both the volume and value of transactions undertaken, Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand are actively looking to recruit an additional member to join the Commercial team.
