JPA Brenson Lawlor complete €50m corporate finance deals in H1 2018
Firm sets sights on €500 million Irish aviation market
JPA Brenson Lawlor, a top fifteen business advisory and accountancy practice, has completed corporate finance deals to the value of over €50m in the first half of 2018. The Dublin based firm, with an industry expertise in the I.T., community pharmacy and nursing home sectors, advised clients including the German group IMMAC on their acquisition of the Beechfield Nursing Home Group as well as pharmacy chains Sam McCauley, McCabe Pharmacy Group and Your Local Pharmacy Group on recent acquisitions. This level of activity places the firm in the upper tier of corporate finance advisors in Ireland.
Commenting, Brenson Lawlor Corporate Finance partner Jason Bradshaw said, “Reflecting the strong Irish economy we are seeing a very robust pipeline of acquisitions and sales of trading businesses. The only thing holding back even greater deal activity is the continuing squeeze on access to bank finance, though even this issue is finally showing some signs of easing.
“As an internationally connected firm we are always seeking new sectors that we could specialise in. Ireland is now a leader in aircraft leasing and our firm has decided to get our slice of that market. Today, we can announce the launch of our specialist aircraft auditing service, a service we can offer to the global aircraft leasing market at highly competitive rates. Having tested the market we already have some significant take up, so I’m delighted to announce that JPA Brenson Lawlor is actively seeking to hire specialists in this area, with work starting immediately. In total the firm is seeking to add ten people to its existing complement of 63 staff and 6 partners.”
