Headed by the 'excellent' Mark Thompson, the practice at Shakespeare Martineau LLP has established an excellent reputation for hotel and leisure deals, with IT, renewable energy and construction other areas of expertise. The practice has noted an uptick in hotel and data centre related deals during 2017; on the hotel front, Thompson acted alongside Chris Northway for longstanding client Focus Hotels on the disposal of its interest in the Goldthorn Hotel in Wolverhampton to Talesh Hotels Group. In another key highlight, the practice acted for Suzhou SLAC Precision Equipment, a Chinese company that designs and produces production equipment sets, tooling systems and spare parts, on its acquisition of a UK firm specialising in equipment for two-piece can printing.
