"As they have done with all of our investments, ongoing M&A and exits, the Browne Jacobson team have provided around the clock, high quality legal and commercial advice to both us, management and CTS on this key deal.

"We were impressed with how proactive and knowledgeable the Browne Jacobson team were throughout the transaction. They were also able to drawdown on their internal expertise when we had particular queries regarding the target’s intellectual property. They ensured that we were able to meet challenging timescales that we set for completion of the transaction."
"Browne Jacobson have been trusted advisers to LDC for a number of years and have achieved some really fantastic results for us. Having worked with them on the original investment into Addo, we knew they were absolutely the right team to have in place to ensure our exit from the group went as smoothly as possible and that Addo could move on quickly to the next important phase of its business. The quality of the advice and solutions that the team provided and the speed on the completion was first class. We would definitely recommend them and as ever look forward to working with them on our future investments."
"I would like to highlight the first class support we have had from Mike and the wider Browne Jacobson team on this important second investment. They are a highly experienced team that is commercially focused and ensured all parties received clear straightforward advice. We look forward to working with them again."
