We acted for Aspen Phoenix Newco on its acquisition of the Paperchase business which involved the negotiation and completion of 82 new leases and three assignments, all of which were required to be completed before the Government imposed Covid-19 restrictions were lifted on 12 April 2021. Our role on the real estate transaction helped save the Company’s customers, suppliers and 1000 employees.
"My personal thanks to Suki & the BJ team for this awesome finish. We will do you all proud when we open those doors on Monday! The store teams are HUGELY relived their stores are secure, and they have jobs to return to with confidence."
Browne Jacobson is continuing with its efforts to address fairer access and diversity within the legal profession, with the appointment of six work experience students who are currently part of the Law Society’s Diversity Access Scheme (DAS)
