Importantly, they managed the entire process seamlessly, and reacted quickly when issues arose. Whilst always thorough, they were also highly pragmatic ensuring that we maintained momentum throughout the deal. Ultimately, we were delighted with the outcome and felt that they had secured the best possible terms for us.”
