The merger which created UK Top 100 law firm Royds Withy King, together with the sale of the firm’s client Higos Holdings Limited to Global Risk Partners (GRP), are among the deals to have been shortlisted for a prestigious regional business award.
The merger between regional law firm Withy King and city of London practice Royds has been shortlisted for Insider Media’s Financial and Professional Services Deal of the Year alongside the sale of insurance services provider Higos to GRP - a deal which was led by Royds Withy King’s corporate and commercial team.
Katharine Mortimer, partner and head of Royds Withy King’s Corporate & Commercial team in Bath, said: “We are delighted that our merger is being considered for this award and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our client Higos on being shortlisted too. This is an interesting time for the financial and professional services market as many firms look to acquire robust businesses which will enable them to grow their market share, gain competitive advantage and strengthen their client proposition. We look forward to meeting other businesses and our many contacts in the dealmaking community at the awards ceremony, and celebrating the many success stories.”
