What our clients say...
“A management buy-out was completed for our recruitment business with professional support provided by Michael Crook.
Michael impressed us with his deep understanding and knowledge of the complexities of the recruitment sector which proved to be of great value during negotiations. Michael is diligent, thoughtful and supportive, particularly at times of stress. During meetings his quiet, confident, calm approach facilitated the resolution of compound and stressful issues to the satisfaction of all parties.
We endorse and highly Michael for his excellent work. Michael you are legally awesome!”

“We have used Michael to deal with numerous pharmacy transactions for about 5 years, and always find him to be very easy to deal with, knowledgeable and a great support in deciding how to approach difficult issues. He takes a commercial reassuring approach and works hard to resolve issues and to get the deal completed.
I would highly recommend using Michael for pharmacy sale transactions and the icing on the cake is that his fees are very reasonable.”

A constructive and friendly approach to dealing with all parties is incredibly important to us. We want to enjoy our working day and a positive relationship with all parties. Working collaboratively also helps achieve the best outcome in terms of striking a deal which achieves everyone’s objectives.
Alas, when dealing with those who take a more one sided approach, we provide clients with all the support and representation that they need to stand firm on points of critical importance.
With many years experience, we know what is important and what is less so, and accordingly focus our attention and client’s on the things which really matter.
Whilst many deals will follow a structure and include elements instantly recognisable to any experienced practitioner, no two deals are the same and as experienced lawyers we think about every deal and help clients decide what is acceptable or not, taking into account numerous factors, not least the circumstances of the transaction, the sale price and its structure and above all the client’s commercial objectives.
Negotiating transactions can be challenging, and sometimes stressful for clients; but if nothing else we take a very calm and supportive approach, and help clients understand the issues and make decisions. Ultimately, it is important that clients understand the legal paperwork they will eventually sign, recording not only their rights, but their obligations, sometimes for many years to come.
We undertake work helping clients deal with various types of corporate work including those listed above.
