It seems somebody forgot to tell Nabarro's Glyn Taylor that there's a downturn in the M&A market, with the corporate partner announcing four deals in just 10 days.
The frenzied deal-making started when Taylor acted for Sondex on General Electric's agreed takeover offer via a scheme of arrangement, valued at £289m.
Now on a roll he has acted for Ragusa Capital in the UK on the $72.5m (£35.76m) reverse takeover under AIM rules of electricity, oil and gas assets in Argentina from Ketsal, Integra Investment and Andes Oil.
Still not satisfied, Taylor then advised KimCor Diamonds on the reverse takeover of Dwyka Diamonds and the admission to AIM of its entire ordinary share capital in a deal worth £10m.
Finally he worked on the $18m (£8.88m) sale of a Cambridge-based technology company to a major US group.
In his spare time during the 10 days Taylor also fitted in some work as the chairman of the Arsenal Supporters' Trust, which included - you guessed it - the sale of a large stake in the club.
