Amid a challenging market, Addleshaw Goddard’s Richard Hunt achieved remarkable success in 2023, overseeing diverse transactions exceeding £3bn. His advisory highlights included guiding the founder of tech consultancy 101 Ways through a minority investment from Growth Capital Partners, and pivoting to private equity to counsel LDC on a substantial investment in Boston Energy. Demonstrating Leeds’ prowess, Hunt also collaborated on Asda’s £2.3bn buyout of EG Group’s UK and Ireland businesses alongside Kirkland & Ellis.

Under Hunt’s leadership, the corporate team in Leeds experienced a significant 20 per cent growth over the past year, solidifying its reputation, particularly in the TMT space. As the team charts its course for 2024, the TMT sector will remain a focal point, alongside a diverse pipeline encompassing capital markets, private equity, and corporate M&A deals.
