Blog entries

Working with clients across Leeds, Yorkshire and the North of England, Rachel has a strong track record of advising on all aspects of corporate work including corporate finance, in particular mergers and acquisitions and corporate reorganisations and general corporate governance, with specific focus on owner managed businesses.

“I take time to understand my clients, their businesses and objectives as, for me, this is fundamental to providing the best advice possible. It is essential to understand the law, but it is more important to understand how the law will help my client achieve their goals."

“I provide sensible commercial advice and effective transaction management, bringing to bear my experience in all corporate finance work and have both led and assisted on many private company acquisitions and disposals. These have included advising on the sale of Hesco Bastion Limited to Betafence Corporate Services NV for an undisclosed sum and one of the UK’s leading piling and foundation specialists, Roger Bullivant Ltd to the French parent company of rival Bachy Soletanche in a complex deal. The deal involved the sale of the Roger Bullivant foundation and piling business to the global construction group Soletanche Bachy Enterprise SAS for an undisclosed sum.”
