Alison Scott – Corporate

Having recently completed a sale process of my business to another UK company I can say, without hesitation, that the work carried out on my behalf by Harrison Clark Rickerbys was exemplary.

The work was carried out by Harrison Clark Rickerbys, led by Partner, Alison Scott,  and her trainee solicitor Caminelle Apperly. Cami proved to us in every respect that she has the knowledge and the skill to handle even the most complex tasks and always with a view to making the clients’ journey as professional and smooth as possible. Cami had to liaise with a significant number of people within my business and she was able to communicate, what can sometimes be complicated information, in a way that they were able to understand. I have no doubt that Cami is heading for a great career in the law!

My thanks go out to Alison for keeping me grounded and calm when inside I was far from that!”

Our Company were very pleased with the work that you did to successfully complete our sale. The process however tense, was helped by the fact that at all times your staff were very professional  and it was clear that you had our interests at heart throughout the process.

Thank you for your dedication, your competence and your professional approach. You listened to what we wanted and delivered exactly that. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your colleagues.

The legal advice was professional & great, but so too was the accessibility (Alison, its rare & helpful to find someone working the same hours I do – and very much appreciated).

The highly rated Rod Thomas heads the team.

Alison Scott – Client

HCR provided a fantastic service level and the highest quality of advice on this transaction. Alison and her team always looked for practical soluitons, were excellent at steering us through key legal points, were throughout easy to communicate with and were always very flexible and on top of their subject matter, all of which was not easy in a process that stretched over several months. I would happily use them again and would unreservedly recommend them.


Corporate – sale of a business

Alison Scott and Sophie Phillips of Harrison Clark Rickerbys Corporate Team handled the recent sale of my business extremely efficiently, calmly and were always reassuring at a time which is naturally fraught. They worked successfully to a strict deadline and achieved this on a fixed fee and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

“When selling your small company to a Global corporation you very soon feel out numbered. They have teams of specialists that understand all the ins and outs of acquisition and for me, even the words and phrases they used were new. Alison Scott and her team soon put some balance in to the negotiation and by the end, for every point we conceded they moved ten. Do not sell your business without Harrison Clark Rickerbys!”

Gary Allcock, PEO Controls Europe Ltd.

“I think you have both been amazing throughout this deal and I honestly don’t believe that anyone else would have had a chance to pull it off. Your advice was always spot on. In all my years of business and closing deals, I’ve never worked with such an experienced, confident team and I genuinely mean that and appreciate what you have done.”

“My company engaged the services of Harrison Clark Rickerbys during the sale of the business.  This was an easy decision as they had previously acted for us when acquiring a few other businesses.  We have always been impressed by their professionalism and pragmatic approach.  They worked very well as a team with our professional advisers at Springboard Corporate Finance.  It was both rewarding and even at times an enjoyable process.  We would not hesitate to recommend their services to any prospective client.”
