Corporate finance teams at Nabarro Nathanson's Sheffield office have clinched three deals since the office was opened by Environment Secretary John Gummer a month ago.
Sheffield is the headquarters of the firm's north of England operations which had previously been centred in Doncaster and Hull.
The office, which boasts 220 fee earners and support staff, is recruiting senior lawyers to fuel further expansion.
The consolidated northern practice advised Midland Bank in Sheffield which provided debt funding in connection with a management buy-out at ice skate blades supplier
Hattersley and Davidson, acquired from Nike. Equity funding in the transaction was provided by 3i, which was represented by its in-house legal department.
Nabarros also advised Midland Growth Capital, which provided equity funding to help the management buy-out of Blackpool kitchen and bathroom fitting group City Distribution. Turner Parkinson in Manchester acted for the management.
In another deal, the firm represented Royal Bank Acquisition Finance in Leeds which provided acquisition finance to Total Office group, which has acquired rival Bristow Design Systems. Bristow was represented by Manches and Total was advised by Gouldens.
