North West team win Dealmakers award for a fourth time!

Dow Schofield Watts has been named as Mid-Market Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year at the 2020 Insider North West Dealmakers Awards.

It is the fourth time in recent years that the firm has scooped the title, which it also won in 2015, 2016 and 2017. The judges in this year’s awards said they were impressed with all the entries and commended Dow Schofield Watts’s activities across business deals of all sizes.

A deal on which the firm advised – the MBO of Jackson Lees Group by MAPD Ventures – was also highly commended in the sub-£10m Deal of the Year category while another deal, the sale of Auger Site Investigations to Sdiptech AB for £25m, was shortlisted for International Deal of the Year. The winners of the 2020 awards were announced today at a virtual event following the cancellation of the annual deals dinner last November.

Dow Schofield Watts founding partner James Dow said: “Winning an Insider Dealmakers Award is a real honour and winning this team award is even more special. This latest success highlights Dow Schofield Watts’ role as the region’s leading mid-market advisory firm and our growing reputation at a national level. We very proud of the success of our corporate finance team and I know they are committed to continuing their excellent track record.”
