The award-winning Corporate Finance advisory team at PKF Smith Cooper have received further recognition after being shortlisted for two awards at the Insider East Midlands Dealmakers Awards 2022.

The good news follows a successful year for mergers and acquisitions within the East Midlands and the UK as a whole with near-record high levels of activity.

The annual Insider Dealmakers Awards celebrates leading firms, funders and individuals in the deal-making sector. With eight award categories and regional ceremonies taking place across the UK, these prestigious awards give recognition to only the highest achievements from the last financial year.

Our Corporate Finance team have been nominated for the following awards:

  • Corporate Finance Advisory Team of the Year
  • Emerging Dealmaker of the Year – Tom Joy

PKF Smith Cooper is among a select shortlist of companies in the deal advisory and funding sector, chosen by a judging panel of industry experts. Mergers and acquisitions within the East Midlands thrived during FY22 with nearly 500 deals worth over £3.6bn in total reported in the region, a significant increase on deal volume in FY21.

Winners of the East Midlands awards will be announced on Thursday 19th May 2022 at a special black-tie ceremony held in honour of the nominees. Members of the region’s leading finance and accountancy firms will be in attendance.
