Recent transactions include advising Rutland Partners on its acquisition of Armitage Pet Care, the investment in Global Freight Solutions, the growth capital investments in Addison Lee and CitySprint, the tertiary buy-out of NES Global Talent, the management buy-outs of Armitage Pet Care and 4Ways Healthcare and the sales of UK Heating Group, Thompson & MorganGardman, ARX Group and Interfloor.
