Walker Morris advises NorthEdge Capital on its investment in Help-Link
Corporate lawyers from Walker Morris have advised NorthEdge Capital, a private equity firm focused on investing in businesses based in the north of England, on its investment in Help-Link.
The investment, NorthEdge’s third from its maiden £225m fund, backs the growth ambitions of Help-Link, which specialises in boiler installation and maintenance, and its management team.
NorthEdge’s investment will be used to further accelerate the company’s growth plans to increase its market share of the boiler installations and service market. It will also allow Help-Link to expand its brand further into other areas.
Legal advice to NorthEdge was provided by Walker Morris corporate partner John Hamer and corporate associate Joy Irving.
NorthEdge’s investment backs the management team, led by chief executive Mel Butler, sales director Alan Dickinson, operations director Jim Stephenson and finance director Alastair Gamage.
As part of the deal, experienced private-equity non-executive Keith Pacey becomes non-executive chairman of Help-Link. NorthEdge partner Andy Ball and director James Hall join as non-executive directors.
