The corporate team at Shoosmiths Leeds is set for a strong first year after advising clients on transactions with an aggregate value of more than £600m during its first eight months in operation.

Headed by partner Philip Goldsborough, Shoosmiths’ Leeds corporate team was launched in June 2017 and from a standing start is now firmly established in the Yorkshire market, having transacted a broad variety of deals including significant domestic and cross-border M&A and private equity transactions.

Central to Shoosmiths’ ambition of creating a Northern hub of legal expertise for clients, the Leeds corporate team is advising clients on a regional, national and international basis, across a broad range of sectors including notable transactions in oil and gas, construction, healthcare, real estate, manufacturing and textiles.
