Sheffield corporate team celebrates £100m in cumulative deals

Sheffield-based MD Law’s corporate team has completed deals worth a cumulative value of more than £100m in the last year.  

Examples of their successes include acting for the owners on the sale of a 78-bed, purpose-built Middlesex care home. The firm also assisted with the disposal of a Sheffield based commercial laundry business to a nationwide provider. 

The complex legal work was completed by MD Law’s James Burdekin, who specialises in commercial and corporate law and solicitor Natalie Gibson who joined earlier this year. James became the fifth partner at the expanding Broomhall-based boutique firm in October 2021.  

James said: “The team has had a great start, picking up a number of significant instructions – many recommended by our local contacts in accountancy and finance. Despite economic uncertainty and a harder market, the outlook is still looking positive, with many deals in the pipeline as there is funding available.” 

James’ skills include advising a wide variety of businesses across all sectors. His particular specialisms lie in share and assets acquisitions and disposals; company restructures and sales; terms and conditions of trade; shareholders’ agreements and partnerships, and advising on corporate governance. 

Founder and partner of MD Law Matthew Dixon said: “The last 12 months have been our busiest ever on the corporate side, and the new team has worked incredibly hard to ensure all projects were finished to our usual high quality.”
