Law firm Pinsent Masons advised on €0.5bn (£362m) worth of deals involving Aventas - the new name for the former Quinn Group of companies - during the past six months.

The transactions follow the collapse of the empire of former Fermanagh tycoon, Sean Quinn.

Four of the firm's European offices, including Belfast, advised on the sale in October of Barlo Radiators, the sale in January of glass business Encric to a Spanish company, as well as the most recent disposal of plastic sheeting business Polycasa Group.

A spokesman for PM said: "This has been an important series of transactions for Aventas Manufacturing Group and we are pleased to have been involved in them. Lawyers from our offices in Manchester, Belfast, Paris and Munich were active in the deals, underlining both our multi-jurisdictional delivery capability and the firm's international credentials in the manufacturing sector."
