HCR corporate expert supports £11m investment

23rd March 2020

Acting for the management team of James and James Fulfilment, HCR corporate lawyer Inger Anson, head of the firm’s Cambridge office, has supported the private equity-backed £11m investment in the business.

The fulfilment house, which has bases in Northampton and the USA and New Zealand, provides e-retailers with order fulfilment, storing products, packing and shipping orders and handling returns. Their software-based service means that their clients can fulfil orders from multiple channels and countries on one platform, as well as track orders live.

Inger said: “James and James have been a client for several years and I am very pleased to be able to help them to take the next step in their growth. This investment will enable them to develop a larger fulfilment centre, enhance their technology and expand their service to clients; it is great news for the business.”

The firm, which employs more than 100 people worldwide, is growing fast – James Hyde, co-founder of the company, said: “Over the last few years, we’ve been on a strong growth trajectory and are investing more than ever in our in-house fulfilment platform.

“We have worked with Inger for some time and she is a valued member of our team – this was quite complex and to a tight timescale, and she delivered thoroughly and professionally.”
