When asked about the service received from Wilkes, Les Nunn, Founder of LTS said “Throughout the process I was put at ease by Jeremy Parkin and Mike Linford. I sincerely appreciated their responsiveness, knowledge and ability to deal with any issues that arose throughout this process. The way they conducted themselves was totally professional and I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending their services to others. Complete satisfaction.
Commenting on the deal, Jeremy Parkin, Partner in the Corporate Team at Wilkes said: “Working with Les and his team was an absolute pleasure. Throughout the process Les had a clear idea of what he was looking to achieve from the business sale, which was a huge help in the negotiations. We wish Les all the best for his well-earned retirement.”
This is the latest in a growing line of M&A work for The Wilkes Partnership, following the completion of deals across a range of sectors including Financial Services, IT software, FMCG, events and health and social care.
