Walker Morris has acted for Numis Securities Limited, as nominated adviser and broker, in connection with the £103.5m admission of Knights Group Holdings Plc to the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange and £50m fundraising by way of placing of new and existing shares.
The Knights group is a UK regional legal and professional services business, ranked within the UK top 100 largest law firms by revenue. Knights was one of the first law firms in the UK to move from the traditional partnership model to a corporate structure in 2012. Its IPO on the AIM market is only the fifth, and is the largest, listing in the UK to date of a legal services business.
The Walker Morris team was led by corporate partner Daniel O’Gorman assisted by Richard Naish, and Laura Cavell.
Daniel is listed in The Lawyer magazine’s 2018 Hot 100, which recognises the best lawyers in the UK, as one of the top UK dealmakers.
