Deal of the Year triumph for Blake Morgan


Posted on 12th February 2024

Blake Morgan were victorious in the Deal of the Year Award (£10m-£40m) at the Insider South East Dealmakers Awards 2024.

Legal Director Jake Holmes led on the deal and acted for HSBC’s South East Corporate Banking team, putting in place the sizeable debt package.

Banking & Finance partner and Chair, Kath Shimmin, commented:

I am delighted that Jake and the team won the mid-sized deal of the year. It is just recognition for the hard work and expertise they showed in getting the deal over the line. The evening was fantastic and brilliant to celebrate their achievement.

The Blake Morgan team who worked on the deal, included Jake, Lauren Green and Jodie Craven from the Banking & Finance team as well as Michael Ward and James Boschat from the Real Estate group.

Jake added: “It was great to work with HSBC on this deal and something we are all proud to have achieved. Thank you to everyone involved.”

The awards evening took place at Lingfield Racecourse on 8 February with Blake Morgan and their clients attending in force. The awards celebrated the success and recognised the achievements of the professional advisers supporting businesses across the South East.
