We appointed Addis Law in April 2019 to act on our behalf (the management team) in relation to a management buy-out of consultancy firm, EEVS, from its plc owner.

We worked closely with Sally through detailed contract drafting, due diligence and negotiations and, ultimately, to the successful completion of the Sale and Purchase Agreement and related documentation in July 2019.

Throughout this process the Addis Law team provided the highest quality legal counsel and professional expertise; whilst Sally’s calm and considered approach meant she remained unflappable and diligent throughout, and especially at the business-end of the deal.  Sally is an excellent communicator and was always highly responsive, keeping us up-to-date and well-informed throughout. In a transaction like this, the confidence and reassurance this provided was absolutely invaluable. Similarly, Sally and wider Addis Law team all worked extremely hard on our behalf, going  well above and beyond to get the deal done by the deadline day – for this we remain very grateful.

Impressive throughout, I would have no hesitation in recommending Addis Law to successfully deliver a corporate transaction like ours.
