Excitech have been advised by Lucy and her team for almost 20 years. We’ve confidently navigated a multitude of complex events and transactions in our corporate life with their support, including acquisitions, property sales/purchases, demergers, employee-related matters and, ultimately, the sale of the business. We have benefitted from their extensive knowledge in both tax and legal matters, with their expertise shared in a balanced and pragmatic manner. This approach has proven invaluable when negotiating with third parties, enabling deals to be closed and the interests of the company and shareholders protected. Their dedication and commitment to helping the board and shareholders achieve their goals is second to none.
