Partner Andy Stylianou and director Gareth Baker led the transaction. They were assisted by real-estate partner Phil Clissitt, director Graham Spalding from the transaction services team, banking and finance partner Kirsty Barnes, insurance director Samantha Holland, tax associate Patrick Allan, associate James Barr and solicitor Caroline McNally from the IT and outsourcing team and Rory Jones.

Wragge & Co’s private equity team offers detailed guidance on pre-transaction decisions, financing, structuring and tax issues and post-transaction services.
