Ensors corporate finance and forensics team had a record year in 2015, completing deals worth over £250 million and doubling its size, to make it one of the largest specialist teams in the region.

Overall 24 transactions were completed, with a further 16 negotiated to offer stage and 28 forensic assignments were undertaken that included professional negligence, valuation, fraud and complex taxation matters. Records were broken board with instructions coming both from existing and new clients and across a wide range of sectors.

These included transport & logistics, financial services, construction, media, retail, domiciliary care, technology, professional services, manufacturing, facilities management and energy sectors.  Deals were also completed in the not-for-profit sector where the firm has a reputation for dealing in the growing charity merger sector.

2015 saw the Ensors team continue to work on projects with an international flavour. During the year, projects with interests in USA, Canada, Jersey, Sweden, Ireland, Singapore, Cayman and Switzerland  were carried out.   And the team’s growing forensic offering continues to reach outside of the region regularly being instructed on matters by highly respected regional and London law firms.

Rick Norland, CEO at Eirsen Healthcare Inc commented “ My association with Ensors has been a pleasure. Definitely a good decision for us. You are a very strong team for Corporate Finance advice.”

“2015 has been a great year and one in which I am proud to look back on both the quality and diversity of deals we have completed,“ said David Scrivener, Ensors partner.  “Our team has grown with us and put in a huge amount of effort to deliver the high levels of service we provide to our clients.”

Looking forward to 2016, Fiona Hotston Moore, partner, said: “In addition to successfully completing successfully a large number of complex transactions and forensic accounting assignments in 2015, we have invested in the development of the technical expertise and soft skills in our team. We are now well placed to support both existing and new clients in 2016 and we would like to thank all our professional referrers and instructing solicitors for their support.”
