Amie Kelsall advised on the property aspects of this transaction and Andrew Whiteaker on the employment aspects.

Commenting on the transaction, John Ingram, Managing Director, said “We were extremely impressed with the Boyes Turner team, particularly the exemplary service of Sophie Payne who tirelessly demonstrated an admirable combination of dedication, commitment and a great depth of knowledge and skill. Sophie was a pleasure to work with throughout a complex transaction and the moving challenges that were presented”.
