Forbes Solicitors has advised S&L Wilson Limited on the acquisition of the business and assets of Howards Opticians Limited for £300,000.
The transaction was led by Pauline Rigby with assistance from Sanya Motorwala, both of Forbes Solicitors' Business Law team. Pauline commented, "It was an absolute pleasure for Forbes to have the opportunity to work with the directors of S&L Wilson Limited. It is an exciting time for Stuart and Lisa Wilson and we wish them all the success in their new venture. As well as corporate advice, the transaction required specialist advice on Employment Law and Commercial Property issues, and therefore the advantage of having solicitors within those areas allowed the quick turnaround of the transaction".
Stuart Wilson worked alongside the owner of Howards Opticians for a number of years. Stuart commented, "Pauline and the team at Forbes have been professional, thorough, friendly and efficient from day one through to completion. We will certainly be using them again as we look to move our business forward".
Howards Opticians Limited was represented by Peter Blackledge of Tickle Hall Cross.
