RSM targets mid-cap PLC advisory market with M&A partner hire

RSM has appointed James Lewis as an M&A partner in its corporate finance practice.

He joins RSM from Deloitte where he jointly led the firm’s PLC M&A Advisory team. Prior to that, he held advisory and M&A positions at both Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse. In his career to date, he has completed over 45 deals worth in excess of £14bn including buyside and sellside M&A transactions, public offers, debt for equity swaps and capital market mandates.

In his new role, Lewis will lead an expansion of RSM’s advisory proposition with a specific focus on M&A advisory services to mid-market PLCs. He will also assist the team on M&A transactions involving private companies and private equity firms.

With 16 years’ experience in UK M&A advisory work, Lewis has transaction experience as well as an understanding of M&A regulation and practical experience of the UK Takeover Code. He is also a member of the ICAEW Corporate Finance Faculty’s Technical Committee and Takeover Code Consultation Review Committee.

Rob Donaldson, head of corporate finance at RSM said: “We plan to expand our services to PLCs and James’ experience will be invaluable in helping us achieve our objective.

‘James has an extensive network across the mid-market including corporates, lawyers, brokers and other market participants and is well respected among the board level decision makers he advises. His skills and experience will complement those in our existing corporate finance practice and I’m delighted to welcome him to the team.”
