GS Verde maintains top legal and financial Experian ranking in 2023

The GS Verde Group has secured the top spot as the most active M&A advisors of Q3 2023, in Experian's most recent Market IQ report, uniquely leading the rankings in both the legal and financial tables in Wales - the only firm to do so.

GS Verde previously achieved the top spot in the legal and corporate finance rankings for 2022. The business's consistent success in the Experian Market IQ reports is a testament to its unique multidiscipline approach to dealmaking. By offering legal, finance, tax, and communications services under one roof, GS Verde has redefined the landscape of corporate advisory services, providing clients with a comprehensive and streamlined experience.

Nigel Greenaway, the CEO of GS Verde Group, expressed his pride at the recognition, stating, "We are delighted to see GS Verde Group ranked as the most active dealmaking team in Wales by Experian once again. It is a fair reflection of the activity levels we have seen in 2023 so far, and to top the rankings as 'most active' in both Legal and Finance advisor sections truly highlights the efficacy of our multidiscipline team."

The Market IQ report reviews deal activity across the UK, highlighting those firms that excel in delivering success in both a legal and corporate finance capacity. The report also looks at regional M&A trends, reviewing the current landscape of the industry.

In this most recent report, Wales was the only part of the UK to display a growth in dealmaking activity (increasing by 6%) for Q3, despite the various economic challenges that are affecting many businesses across the country. This is a reflection of the busy year that GS Verde has seen in transactions, noting consistent activity across a large number of sectors.

This positive outlook reinforces GS Verde's momentum throughout 2023, following on from its successful acquisition of an accountancy firm in Dublin, multiple senior hires, and record revenue levels. The Group is well-posed to continue its trajectory of success for the remainder of the year and into 2024.
