Shoosmiths has advised NVM Private Equity (NVM) on a £4m development capital investment into a Salford Quays-based consultancy which is primed for growth in the wake of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

Customs Connect and Customs Connect Europe, which aim to minimise customs duty paid by importers through re-classification and suspension, plans to use the capital to both support an expanded service offering within the UK and to facilitate growth across mainland Europe.
