TLT’s corporate team has won the prestigious ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’ and Large Deal of the Year’ 

Now in their 18th edition, these awards recognise the achievements of the South West’s leading corporate finance firms, accountants, funders, banks, lawyers and M&A professionals.

Success in the ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’ category recognised the firm’s outstanding success over the last twelve months, working on several of the region’s most complex and significant deals.

The exit by LDC from Cakesmiths, a deal which our corporate team advised on, was recognised as the ‘Large Deal of the Year’. We advised private equity investor LDC, and the management team on their exit of Cakesmiths, a Bristol-based manufacturer and supplier of artisan cakes. The team advised on all legal aspects of the exit process to Onore, a leading private equity backed European player in frozen pastries and snacks. This deal showcased the strength of our regional business community and its international reach, and also involved a number of local parties.

The team's work on the sale of Amdaris to Insight Enterprises Inc was also recognised as 'highly commended' in the 'Large Deal of the Year' category. 

Andrew Webber, partner and head of corporate at TLT commented: “Winning Corporate Law Firm of the Year is testament to the hard work and all-round excellence of our growing corporate practice, which is continuing to go from strength to strength in the South West and beyond. We continue to advise large corporates as well as some of the UK's most exciting start-ups and fast-growth businesses and their investors. These award wins reflect our excellent reputation as one of the most active law firms in the South West and are welcome recognition of the dedication of our team for providing a best in-class service to our clients. We are incredibly pleased to have been recognised by the judges and honoured to have won these awards. Thank you and congratulations to the corporate team who have made this happen and to our clients and the advisers we have worked alongside over the past year.”
