Patrick Brown, Managing Partner, Tughans, “We are delighted to win this prestigious award for the second year which comes on the back of us being named top of the Experian Deal and Advisors League Table 2016 also for the second consecutive year.

“Whilst our largest deal last year was the sale of local company Delta Print and Packaging to Huhtamaki for £80 million we were delighted to see one our other deals win the category ‘Deal of the Year’ for deals below £10 million – the management buyout of Queen’s University spin-out company TruCorp. These accolades highlight the dedication and professionalism of our team demonstrating the value of the strategic advice given to our clients to complete landmark deals.”
