Howes Percival Leisure and Tourism acted for Craft Leisure in its acquisition of Corporate purchase of a holiday business, including legal due diligence, share purchase agreement, tax covenants & warranties, searches and title investigation of multiple properties, and preparing shareholder settlement agreements and other ancillary documents. The client commented:
“Richard Turner’s (corporate lawyer) calm, confident and professional manner was immensely reassuring. From the outset, it was clear that he knew what he was doing, understood the complexities of the deal and would ensure that our interests were protected.
Joanna Nicholls (property lawyer) is friendly, professional and conscientious. The registered titles had excessively complex rights and obligations, but she worked through them diligently - often working through the evenings to get the reports on title delivered in time.
A very professional, responsive and reassuring organisation, who give the impression that they genuinely have the best interests of their clients at heart. All members of the team were good at listening to our opinions, taking them on board and offering sound and imaginative advice based on our needs and expectations. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending them to others, and using them for the next project.”
