An investment supported by our Corporate team has won Medium-Sized Deal of the Year (£10m-£25m) at this year’s South West Dealmakers Awards.

The deal, which totalled £15.5m, was made by equity investor BGF into Troy UK, an independent network for tools and maintenance supplies.

Judges described the investment as “a strong deal that provided further growth to a business that has ramped up operations in recent years and has become a firm leader in its sector”.

Partner Mark Rutherford said: “We are delighted that our work on BGF’s investment into Troy UK has been recognised by the South West Dealmakers Awards.

“As always, our team has shown a tireless dedication to achieving results that delight our clients, and this award provides well-deserved acknowledgement of their hard work and strong legal expertise.”

Two deals supported by Gateley were also shortlisted in the same category: NVM Private Equity’s £18m MBO of Leading Resolutions, and the sale of The Mike Burton Group’s interests in Sports, Travel, and Hospitality to Sodexo Live! and the subsequent sale of The Mike Burton Group to Destination Sport Group.

The Insider South West Dealmakers Awards 2024 were held at the Bristol Marriott on Thursday 27 June.
