Dow Schofield Watts expands Midlands corporate finance team

Dow Schofield Watts (DSW) has expanded its recently established Midlands corporate finance team with the appointment of a new associate director. Lucy Fairclough will be based at its new Leicester office at Gresham Works on Market Street.

Her appointment comes just weeks after the team was set up and brings the total number to four. Lucy who is originally from the Midlands, spent over 15 years with PwC and KPMG in London. At KPMG she provided advice to clients including INEOS Group, National Australia Bank and Macquarie Group. Whilst at PwC she worked on deals including PFI partnerships and initial public offerings on the UK stock exchange, and spent time on secondment to a regulatory body. More recently she has combined a career break with providing consultancy to a real estate developer and an online retail business.

Lucy will support the team in advising on deals including sales, management buyouts, acquisitions and equity and debt fundraising, working primarily with owner-managed and private equity-backed mid-market businesses.

DSW’s Midlands corporate finance team was set up in September by Harry Walker, Fahim Kassam and Daniel Chouciño who joined from FRP Corporate Finance and is currently based in Leicester and Nottingham, with plans to expand further within the region in the future.

Lucy said: “I’m delighted to have returned to the Midlands. It’s where I started my career and I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my network and being part of DSW in the region. Being able to work with the highly credible team of Harry, Fahim and Daniel was a key attraction together with the strength of the DSW Network and its extensive capabilities.”

Harry Walker added: “We are really pleased to welcome Lucy to the team. Her exceptional track record and complementary skillsets will further strengthen our offer to clients and our local presence. It’s been an exciting few months for us and we’re looking forward to continuing the growth of our team and offering in the near future.”
