Thank you for your efforts in working towards the deadline. I know it was dropped on you very late and I very much appreciate the speed and understanding of the necessity, to just get it over the line. You come across as professional and knowledgeable in your field but above all else, you have an empathy and likeability that makes business with you an absolute pleasure!

It was not an easy decision to sell our business when we were approached, but once we had agreed, we knew we’d need high quality legal advice to see us over the line. For over four years we have worked with several professionals at Aaron & Partners, so it made sense to call on their expertise again. This was quite a complicated deal as our Holdings company consisted of both a property company and an operating company and this meant our professional team had to deal with two sets of professional advisers on the sell side. However, Hugh Strickland and his team managed all aspects of the deal exceptionally well. They gave us useful, measured advice and always remained calm. Zoe Lloyd and Phoebe Bishton worked tirelessly alongside Hugh, building good rapport with their counterparts on the other side of the deal and ensuring that everything went as smoothly as possible. There was a huge amount of due diligence for us to deal with, but everything was handled very well and we were delighted! Aaron & Partners were extremely professional through the sale, keeping us involved and up to date at all times; it was a great collaboration! Selling our business was incredibly stressful but the team supported us every step of the way and made it as easy and painless as possible. We are very happy!

Hugh Strickland and Zoe Lloyd have shown a deep appreciation of commercial issues which we have found extremely helpful and reassuring. Deep understanding of legal matters is expected, but this commercial awareness is a welcome bonus.

Our business provided help and support for providers of school-aged childcare, such as breakfast clubs, holiday clubs, and after school clubs.  There is a huge amount of information for such providers to digest and a host of regulatory information and guidelines to familiarise themselves with and adhere to.  Our business helped providers navigate through this maze. After running the business for nearly 12 years, we were already starting to think that it was time to hand it over to a fresh pair of hands who could drive it forwards, when a spate of serious illnesses and accidents within our immediate families, confirmed that now was time to sell. We found a buyer relatively quickly but finding the right legal help proved to be more elusive.  After many searches and phones calls, we were left frustrated by condescending solicitors quoting astronomical fees. In the end it was a friend of a friend that recommended Zoe Lloyd and Aaron and Partners and we were so glad they did. Zoe was friendly and professional right from the start; we had an instant rapport! She was direct, cut through all the legal jargon and was always available to us. We had complete confidence in her ability to sell our business in a prompt and efficient manner and she did not disappoint us. Zoe provided us with an exemplary service.  She was supportive, reassuring and very business-like.  She took control of all the business issues and remained calm to complete our sale in a timely and orderly way, despite a whole raft of unexpected last-minute obstacles.  We enjoyed working with Zoe immensely and would love to do so again.  We would highly recommend her!

I had previously worked with Aaron & Partners on a GDPR project and had been impressed with their service.  Therefore, when the opportunity arose to sell my business, I did not hesitate to work with them again. They were also highly recommended by my associate who brokered the deal. I had not had a good experience with other Shrewsbury law firms; in fact, it had been a struggle.  However, I found Zoe Lloyd to be fantastic to work with.  She took complete control and was extremely professional, reassuring and attentive. She never let me down! Along with her colleague Phoebe Bishton, she worked tirelessly to ensure that the sale of my business was completed on time. I was very pleased! It was a breath of fresh air working with a such a progressive, forward-thinking firm with big ideas; I’m very impressed. Zoe has since introduced me to her colleague Jo Parsons who is also excellent to work with.  I’m so happy with the service I am receiving from Aaron & Partners. I believe they really care about my business interests, and they support me emphatically.

Once we had decided to sell our business to another pharmacy, we knew we would need expert legal advice to see us over the line. We had a long-standing relationship with Hugh Strickland stretching over fifteen years, so it made sense to turn to him and Aaron and Partners to assist us with the sale. Hugh put me in touch with Zoe Lloyd who was fantastic to work with and provided me with exemplary service. She was very professional, knowledgeable and supportive.  Zoe was assisted by Phoebe Bishton from the Corporate/Commercial department and Ella Mooney who dealt with property issues for me; they were a great team! I found them extremely efficient and organized, providing me with regular updates, cutting through legal jargon and ensuring we hit our deadline. Selling a business can be very stressful but Zoe and the team at Aaron and Partners made sure everything went smoothly; I was very impressed. They made a great impression on me, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Having owned and invested in our hotel for twenty five years we knew we would need a trusted legal team to assist us once we had decided to sell.  We felt that this was a sensitive sale as our hotel is a reputable wedding venue with many bookings and guests to consider as well as a loyal team of employees.  We had to ensure the sale went through smoothly and seamlessly to avoid any disruption to the business. We had successfully worked with Trish Randles on a land deal so looked to Aaron and Partners again to assist us and were introduced to Hugh Strickland. We were glad we did as Hugh and his team were very professional, reliable and efficient. We worked mainly with Zoe Lloyd but also had dealings with Phoebe Bishton. We developed a great working relationship with them both and Hugh was always there to oversee the sale. The team made the sale of our business hassle free, dealing with everything professionally including the buyers challenging legal team! I had complete confidence in them. They were flexible, helpful and kept me up to date at all times. It was a great partnership, and I would be happy to work with them again.
