Demand for mergers and acquisitions ensured Harrison Clark Rickerbys continued to be first across the UK for the number of deals done in the third quarter according to Experian’s M&A report for the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The firm took the top spot in the South East and South West along with the East of England and the Midlands.

Showing that the M&A market continues to be active across the board, the firm’s corporate team made second place in London, third in Wales, sixth in the North West and eighth in Yorkshire and the Humber.

Rich Wilkey, head of the firm’s corporate team, said: “It’s pleasing to see that high levels of M&A activity have continued through 2022. To be ranked first for activity in the UK overall shows that the market remains buoyant. This is good news for clients who are looking to grow and diversify their offerings to a different, wider audience.

“Looking ahead, our pipeline is strong going into 2023; so we hope to be just as busy!”
