Carson McDowell is delighted to be named Corporate Law Firm of the Year at the 2021 Insider Media Northern Ireland Dealmakers Awards.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the Corporate team at Carson McDowell had a busy year that ended ahead on the year-on-year business. Stand-out transactions included the acquisition of Armstrong Medical by Eakin Healthcare Group; the investment in Fibrus by InfraCapital; and the sale of James Leckey Design to Sunrise Medical.

Impressed judges recognised the team’s strength in depth and the range of niche specialisms, adding value to the firm’s corporate financial transactional work.

Carson McDowell also advised on the winning Deal of the Year (transaction size over £10m) for the sale of Armstrong Medical to Eakin Healthcare Group. The judges highlighted that the conjoining of two major indigenous healthcare businesses serves to further reinforce Northern Ireland’s reputation in this sector around the world.

Richard Gray, partner and head of Corporate at Carson McDowell said: “Above all this was a fantastic team effort both within Carson McDowell and as part of our clients’ wider team. All of our colleagues responded brilliantly to the challenging circumstances and ensured that the service to our clients was not impacted.”
