Pallet Plus, Gary and Arlene have been long term clients of Ellisons and it is a pleasure to see their hard work come to fruition with this deal.
After completion, clients Gary and Arlene Rowe commented: “As long-term clients of Ellisons we knew what to expect and we were extremely comfortable in the knowledge we would receive the best advice and our future was in safe, reliable hands. The legal appointment was key to us in such an important transaction, more so than we appreciated at the start of the process, and the professionalism and prompt attention was second to none.”
The team at Ellisons was led by Corporate & Commercial Partner Paul Forsyth, with assistance being provided by David Heller (Senior Associate Solicitor, Corporate), Eve Hudson (Trainee Solicitor, Corporate), Ross Wiltshire (Partner, Commercial Property) and Tina Maxey (Associate Solicitor, Employment).
On behalf of the team, Paul said: “This was an enjoyable deal to work on. There were significant complexities in the deal, most notably with the property aspect and the exciting plans Pallet Plus has to relocate following the acquisition. Those issues were enjoyable to work through with Gary and Arlene.”
