Strong start for Shoosmiths corporate team

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 has transacted a variety of deals including significant domestic and cross border M&A and private equity transactions.

The Leeds corporate team is advising clients on a regional, national and international basis, across sectors including oil and gas, construction, healthcare, real estate, manufacturing and textiles.

Goldsborough is joined by James Foster, both having worked together at Pinsent Masons and Irwin Mitchell, while the team was further strengthened in November 2017 with the recruitment of senior associate Simon Procter from Eversheds.

Goldsborough said: “Our team has worked exceptionally hard since entering the market last year and we have established a strong pipeline of work and are set to make a big impact in 2018.

“We are focused on continuing to build our client base across the board, and continuing to deliver the outstanding client experience that Shoosmiths and our team is known for.”

This month, the firm will move into new offices at Bruntwood’s landmark Platform redevelopment.
