There’s no denying that 2011 was another difficult year. Notwithstanding the state of the market, the Grant Thornton Corporate Finance team had a busy year in 2011. We were successful in maintaining both the quality and quantity of deals that we advised on. This is due to a number of reasons including our local transaction teams providing national coverage, our clear focus on the mid-market, both in the UK and globally, and our commitment to building longterm relationships with dynamic companies and individuals. Raising the Bar takes a look at the deals we advised on throughout the year highlighting our sector expertise.
