Emmanuel Amos, Corporate partner, comments:
“We are proud to have advised Phenna Group’s management team on this key transaction. Inflexion’s agreed minority investment in the business will further assist its already impressive growth to date. This is exactly the kind of transaction that Avonhurst’s clients entrust us with, and it also shows that the right kinds of deals are still being done by willing parties.”
Jonathan Bloom, Chief Executive of Avonhurst, comments:
“When Avonhurst was founded last July, we could not have foreseen just how prescient it was to create a firm that catered to the needs of sophisticated capital clients by offering joined up, bespoke advice that spanned legal, legislative / political risk advisory and capital services. We are ideally placed to help these clients with the extraordinary challenges of the current climate – and the strength of our offering is reflected in the fact that we continue to grow at a time when many firms are struggling. We are seeing continued activity in corporate business and are increasingly in demand for advice on restructuring, real estate, banking and political risk, and expect to see this trend continue.”
