Berry Smith is delighted to have guided valued client, Cardo Group Limited through a double acquisition process. Cardo is making ripples in the industry, with their double acquisition of Osborne Property Services Limited and Jefferies Contractors Limited in quick succession; their third acquisition process facilitated by the Berry Smith legal team in four months.
South-east based Osborne and West Midlands based Jefferies Contractors are Cardo’s latest acquisitions, coming less than four months after the purchase of LCB Group. The two new deals pair fast growing Cardo, with two hugely successful business in their own right, paving the way for a nationwide operation, designed to fully service social housing provider’s maintenance, compliance, retrofit and decarbonisation needs.
Berry Smith worked closely with managing director, Liam Bevan and strategy director, Jane Nelson on both deals, adding value and steering the twin acquisitions through to successful completion. The team led the drafting and negotiation of the legal terms for Cardo, advising on a plethora of matters, necessitating bespoke advice from their specialist corporate, commercial, employment and property teams.
Emma Borrington, Corporate Partner, led the deals to successful completion for Berry Smith, with support from Jacob Sims (Corporate Finance), Ellen Lewis (Corporate Finance), Mollie Eatwell (Corporate Finance) Michael Shutt (Employment), Dan Dowen (Commercial & IP) and Leanne Nixon (Real Estate).
Emma Borrington commented: “We were delighted to advise Liam and Jane, they were a pleasure to work with throughout the acquisition process and we are thrilled to see their continued success. I have no doubt these new partnerships, under the guidance of Liam and Jane, will pave the way for the group’s continued growth and development.”
Liam Bevan, managing director at Cardo Group commented: “Berry Smith pride themselves on their professionalism and they brought that and more to our two recent acquisitions. Emma and Jacob had their full complement of specialists providing assistance including colleagues covering property, employment and commercial contracts. They all showed patience at the busiest of times and made short work of some very complex matters. I personally felt fully supported throughout the process and I know the rest of my team felt the same way.”
