Firm Update – April 2018

18th April 2018

The last six months since our first firm email update seem to have flown by and we would like to share some of the highlights with you…

2017 Deals Review

Our corporate team was delighted to have had a number of transactions featured in the 2017 South West Deals Review published by the Western Morning News at the beginning of the year including investment work for Hub Box Limited and acquisition work for Classic Cottages Limited, both long standing clients of the firm growing their successful brands out of the South West. This year’s statistics also showed that over the last ten years we are placed within the top ten when ranked by the total numbers of corporate deals (acquisitions and disposals of businesses) completed. We have always strived to provide an alternative offer to large regional practices for clients looking for specialist advice on corporate M&A transactions and we are proud to see that the hard work has paid off!

Cornwall Chamber Innovation Investment Network (CIIN)

As a founding sponsor we were pleased to support the inaugurual CIIN series of events last year. Not only did the event result in some fantastic businesses receiving equity investment from local business angels but it provided a great opportunity for networking and communication between entrepreneurs and local business angels which we felt had been missing from the Cornish business networking scene for a number of years. We really look forward to supporting the next series of CIIN events this Spring/Summer – watch this space for more details.


Our property team were pleased to be accepted onto the Folk2Folk property panel, acting for local lenders and borrowers in peer to peer business loans. Folk2Folk is a good fit for us given Murrell Associates’ strong presence within the business communities of Cornwall, Somerset and Gloucestershire.

Happy property clients

The property team’s positive impression on the local business community continues; as shown by these testimonials from Anja Jones Translation based in Newquay and Kim Mace of the Fig Café, Truro.
