Johnston Carmichael has revealed it has enjoyed a strong year in corporate finance, helping to complete deals worth in excess of £300m and “remaining resilient” despite issues caused by Covid-19.
Scotland’s largest independent accountancy and business advisory firm was involved in the completion of more than 30 separate transactions across the UK and overseas throughout 2021.
Sustained new client work throughout the year led Johnston Carmichael to bolster the size of its corporate finance team to over 20 professionals based across offices located in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Graham Alexander, the firm’s head of corporate finance, said: “2021 was another challenging year for businesses. Despite this, our team can look back on a busy year with pride after completing transactions across a range of sectors, reflecting the strength and depth of the wider Johnston Carmichael business.
“We worked with innovative businesses across Scotland and internationally and this continued flow of projects also led to us to attract more talent to the firm as we grew our team further with a number of new hires.”
