Commercial firm Tughans won 25 percent of major corporate deals in Northern Ireland last year, the Belfast Telegraph reports.

It dealt with a quarter of all of corporate transactions above £500,000 and property deals worth more than £15 million.

Patrick Brown, managing partner at Tughans, said the firm’s performance “is testament to the quality of our lawyers and ambition of our clients both locally and internationally”.

John-George Willis, head of the firm’s corporate department, told the Belfast Telegraph: “Having experienced what was in retrospect a challenging year, we are delighted with claiming that slice of the market.

“The market was strong and we had a large market share of mid-size and large transactions in both corporate and property.

“Most involved our existing clients and were a mixture of acquisitions and disposals.”

Mr Brown added: “Heading into our 120th year in business, we are already working on a number of major transactions due to complete in the first quarter of 2016.

“With a strong pipeline of instructions, we are looking forward to another year of growth for ourselves and our clients.

“As a firm we continue to develop specialist expertise to support the specific requirements of our clients as increasingly complex transactions, projects and cases require multi-disciplinary input to ensure a successful conclusion.”
