Hill Dickinson partner, Matt Noon, has been appointed to the board of thriving business membership organisation Professional Liverpool (PL). The organisation - which promotes professional excellence in Liverpool and the city region, announced the appointment at its AGM last week.
Matt, a corporate partner at the Liverpool headquartered international law firm, was appointed to the PL board after membership at the organisation soared 27 per cent over the last year.
Speaking shortly after his appointment Matt said: “I’m delighted to be joining the board at such an important time for Professional Liverpool. There are now 280 member firms, which is 60 more than 12 months ago. To me, that is reflective of the level of business activity across the city region and as somebody born and raised in the city, it’s a great way of helping to promote the quality of the professional services offering in Liverpool.”
Matt, who covers all forms of corporate acquisitions, disposals and joint ventures, has led and completed a number of sizeable deals for Hill Dickinson over the past few months, including the management buyout of ITC Luxury Travel, backed by private equity firm NorthEdge Capital, as well as the £36M sale of Carrs Flour Mills by Carrs Group Plc (a long standing client of Matt’s) to Whitworth Holdings.
Matt commented: “In the first nine months of the year, there was recorded total of 616 deals across the region compared to 601 a year earlier. This shows that while there was a period of slight uncertainty immediately after the Brexit announcement, activity has remained high across the region.”
Matt, named by Legal Week as a rising star in the M&A field, will sit on the Professional Liverpool board as chaired by Jim Gill.
