My team and I are indebted to the Stevens & Bolton team for their unwavering support, sound advice and deal know-how which has ensured we were able to navigate our way through a complex family exit and a fantastic opportunity for the management team to continue to grow this great business.
ED BOWEN, CEO OF THE EPI GROUP
Stevens & Bolton helped us through this difficult transaction and were instrumental in protecting our interests throughout the process. Their advice and counsel was so reassuring, it allowed us to focus on the critical aspects of keeping the business performing at a time when so much was happening. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone embarking upon a transaction of this nature.
GARETH WOKES, CHAIRMAN, THE LOGIC GROUP
I have enjoyed a long term relationship with Stevens & Bolton spanning 8 years. We worked together when I sold a previous software business, in the early days of Staffcare when we raised venture capital investment and when we subsequently sold off part of the business to a management team. This transaction was much more complicated due to its size and the number of investors. After a market review I chose to appoint Stevens & Bolton again as I knew that I could rely on them to do a thorough and professional job in the best interest of all of my shareholders and to allocate the appropriate resource and time to support us throughout the process.
PHIL HOLLINGDALE, FOUNDER AND CEO, STAFFCARE LIMITED
We selected Stevens & Bolton as our legal advisers ahead of some big City firms, because they showed a real interest in our business and a strong practical understanding of the challenges faced by the management team. Their performance was outstanding.
PETER COLES, MANAGING DIRECTOR - ROMANS GROUP
We were delighted with the performance of Stevens & Bolton LLP throughout this transaction. They were highly commercial and responsive, guiding us through the key issues without getting bogged down in the detail and they delivered an excellent outcome. We felt we were in very good hands at all times. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their business.
CHRIS DUDGEON, FOUNDER SHAREHOLDER & MD OF OTM CONSULTING LTD
Opta has had a long association with Stevens & Bolton and I was confident they would look after us well when it came to our exit. As it turned out this was a complex deal which would not have completed on such a tight timescale were it not for the tremendous performance put in by the whole Stevens & Bolton team. They were totally committed, highly commercial, quick, responsive and efficient, technically excellent and a pleasure to deal with. I would 100% recommend Stevens & Bolton LLP.
