What we liked about this deal

We enjoyed working on this transaction alongside Larking Gowen, a fellow member of PrimeGlobal, an association of more than 300 advisory and accounting firms. We provided financial and tax due diligence services to review the financial position of the business and the deal mechanics, while Larking Gowen, a leading accountancy and business advisory firm based in East Anglia, led on the buyside M&A.  The transaction was a great example of how Buzzacott and other PrimeGlobal firms can combine their respective expertise and work together to produce the best outcome for our clients.

The Buzzacott Financial Due Diligence team was made up of Alex Judd (Head of Transaction Services) and Patrick Kirby (Executive). The Larking Gowen team was led by James Lay.

The Buzzacott Tax Due Diligence team was made up of Tony Dillow (Director) and Kazia Kruszewski (Senior Manager).
