City law firm Carson McDowell increases staff due to demand
Belfast-based law firm Carson McDowell has recruited three new lawyers, growing its corporate team to 25.
New staff Paul McGuickin, senior associate, Rosanne Brennan, associate and Helen Boyle, solicitor bring the total number of lawyers in the team to 20, with five support staff.
The move was in response to increased activity within the firm over the past year including transactions with a combined value of more than £750m for clients in Northern Ireland and other markets.
Deals included advising on the £400m-plus sale of Lagan Group's materials business to Breedon Group plc, advising the shareholders of Lowe Rental Ltd on the £60m investment by private equity fund Perwyn and taking the lead adviser role on the acquisition by SHS Group of 3V Natural Foods. It was also named by Experian as Northern Ireland's leading legal adviser for mergers and acquisitions in Q1.
