“As a team the MBO was a process we had not embarked on before and I would like to commend Armstrong Watson for providing sound, straightforward and timely advice throughout the process which ultimately led to a successful conclusion.”
My biggest concern was that my competitors and those that commissioned services would find out that I was selling. Alison and Catherine assured me that everything was done confidentially and the name of my business would not be released until it was absolutely necessary. True to their word nobody found out about the sale of my business until it was signed sealed and delivered.
There are times when I would have given up if it was not for the support of Alison and Catherine. They dealt with the purchaser making it as easy a process as is possible. If ever I should have another business to sell I would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their business.

Armstrong Watson provided an excellent level of service and advice throughout the whole sale process. They were professional, proactive and provided us with advice that enabled us to make informed decisions.

I would like to thank the Yorkshire Corporate Finance Team at Armstrong Watson for assisting me in the sale of my business. They identified an appropriate buyer and negotiated a deal to meet my objectives for an exit with continued involvement for a certain period. Throughout the sale process they were always available to provide straight talking advice and took much of the strain out of what, at times, could have been a stressful process allowing me to continue to focus on the running of my fine wine business and ultimately securing me a successful outcome.
Mr Simon M Wrightson, Richmond Fine Wine
Having faced a number of approaches from law firms and companies over the years to acquire Pryers, it was important for us to wait patiently for the right opportunity with the right company to forge ahead with. Pure Legal undoubtedly presents that opportunity and I am delighted to get this deal over the line and I look forward to working with Phil and his team.
Thanks to our Accountant, Andy Poole and his team from Armstrong Watson, for their diligent work. We were genuinely impressed with their advice and representation.
Ian Pryer, Managing Partner, Pryers LLP
It’s no exaggeration to say that without Armstrong Watson we would not be where we are today. I don’t think we would have achieved our MBO - when we initially sought advice, we decided to go to the firm with the best reputation in the area – and we haven’t been disappointed. Without Armstrong Watson's help I doubt we would have been able to complete the deal. I am delighted with the support Armstrong Watson gives us - they totally deliver on what they promise.
