Never having sold a business before, I didn’t appreciate the enormity of the process involved.  We were tremendously fortunate to have been introduced to the Clarion team which stood out from the competition in terms of professionalism and quality of advice.  Clarion were absolutely spot on and without them we simply wouldn’t have got through to a successful completion.  From the partner right through the team, their consistency and dedication was pivotal to the process, particularly when we came across the inevitable difficulties.  As a full services firm, they were able to provide everything we needed from employment and property advice through to the share purchase agreement.   I can’t speak highly enough of them, Clarion’s support was fundamental  - they were able to cover all aspects required to deliver a successful sale of the business.
