Corporate lawyer Bradley Quin has joined law firm Lodders as partner in the corporate and commercial practice.

An expert in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), complex re-organisations, private equity transactions, buy-outs, joint ventures, equity investments, and a range of financial and commercial matters, Quin was previously a director at KPMG, leading the deals practice of the KPMG law team in the Midlands.

With 20 years’ experience in legal practice, both in-house and over ten years at Gowling WLG (formerly Wragge & Co) and Squire Patton Boggs, he has advised numerous corporate, institutional and privately-owned business clients.

With his specialisms in M&A, buyouts, equity investments and reorganisations, together with his knowledge of the tech, energy, retail, financial services, media and FMCG sectors, Quin has worked extensively with privately owned businesses, including leading the team advising the owners of Romax Technology, a leading provider of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software, on their multimillion-pound sale to global business Hexagon AB.

His move to Lodders follows sustained growth in instructions for the firm’s corporate team.

Partner Graham Spalding said: “The last six months has been an exceptionally busy and rewarding time for the corporate team. We have completed a record-breaking number of high-level, high-value deals for companies and owner managers across the UK in sectors including automotive, manufacturing, industrial engineering and film and broadcast. 2022 is set to be another very busy year for corporate activity for the team, and we are mandated on many more transactions.

“Bradley’s expertise, in particular his M&A specialism and experience advising a range of corporate and institutional clients, high net worth individuals and family businesses, make him a strong, skillful addition to our growing team and we are looking forward to having him on board, helping in the continued growth of the team.”

Quin added: “Lodders is an ambitious, established firm with a long and impressive history of providing exceptional legal advice to an impressive portfolio of clients. The firm is in a very good place, with clear plans for sustained growth and expansion.

“I am looking forward to working at an independent, thriving, progressive firm, and alongside Graham and the rest of the corporate and commercial team, to play a part in taking it forward and to new heights, especially leading deals and M&A instructions. I have learned a lot whilst working at a Big Four multi-disciplinary firm, in particular, the benefits of getting an in-depth understanding of a client’s challenges and strengths, not just their legal needs, and intend to put this to effective use for our clients.”
