Shoosmiths' corporate team - on a hot-streak of deals success - aims to maintain its run with the recruitment of a new partner.

Highly experienced corporate finance lawyer Ben Turner joins the national law firm from Hill Hofstetter (formerly part of Reed Smith).

Turner advises corporates, entrepreneurs and management teams on a range of domestic and cross-border transactional work, including mergers and acquisitions, divestments, restructurings, joint venture arrangements and general corporate matters.

He joins Shoosmiths corporate team as it enjoys a run of deals success, which has seen it appear in the top three of the authoritative UK Experian Corpfin Advisor League Tables for number of deals done.

Based in Birmingham, Turner has excellent sector expertise in financial services, technology, digital media, manufacturing and engineering.

Partner and head of Birmingham corporate Martin Letza said: "Ben is known as someone who gets things done and who builds strong relationships with clients, which makes him a perfect fit for a firm focused on people, relationships and results."

Shoosmiths' corporate and banking team advises PLCs and private companies, management teams, equity investors and debt providers on everything from start-up and first round finance to mergers and acquisitions, buy-outs, development funding, flotations and other exits.
