LDC was recognised at the 2017 Insider South West Dealmaker awards, taking home a trio of awards.

The team was crowned Private Equity House of the Year, having completed some of the region's largest deals over the last 12 months with a combined value of more than £150million.

The management buyout of ADEY was singled out as the region's Deal of the Year, with the judges attributing the win to the vast growth potential of the firm and the sheer volume of South West advisers involved in the deal.

Head of LDC in the South West and Wales Alistair Pendleton was also recognised for his outstanding contributing to the deal making community in the South West, being awarded 'Dealmaker of the Year' because of his "management-led approach to dealmaking".
