Our team beats the clock

Our Commercial Team has been praised for its role in a major deal that was completed in just two weeks.

We handled all the legal aspects of the reorganisation and demerger of land and property sales company, Davis Meade, and the sale of its estate agency arm.

Stuart Haynes, who leads our Commercial Team, said we worked with Davis Meade, corporate advisers The Business Company of Shrewsbury, banks and the purchaser’s solicitors to meet the tight deadline.

“It was vital that everyone worked closely together on this complex transaction to ensure that the deal was completed within the required timescale. With so many different parties involved, partnership was the key to its success.”

And the work carried out by our team has been hailed as an integral part of the process.

Mark Harris, from The Business Company, said: “Martin-Kaye delivered a service which was second-to-none, and certainly equal to any service delivered by any of the city-based firms, in fact it was in many ways better.”

Philip Meade, of Davis Meade Limited, said: “Martin-Kaye showed outstanding organisational qualities and great commitment to us achieving our objectives. There is no doubt that in the final days, their support was key in making the transaction happen.”
