I had already successfully worked with Aaron & Partners to resolve a personal matter so when I decided to purchase a business, it made sense to call on their legal expertise again. I was then introduced to Zoe Lloyd from the corporate/commercial team who was excellent!
I imagined that the purchase of Van Dousburgh’s Ltd would be relatively straight forward but it wasn’t at all. There were many restrictions placed on the mechanics of the transaction by the bank, which made it a very complicated and long, drawn out process. However, Zoe dealt with everything calmly and professionally. She went above and beyond what I expected of her to complete the deal which I don’t believe would have happened at all without her.
Zoe provided me with an exemplary service. She was supportive, reassuring and very business-like. She cut through all the legal jargon so I understood everything that was happening; she even recommended an amazing accountant to me as well. I couldn’t be happier!
I am delighted with the excellent personal and corporate service I have received from Zoe and Aaron & Partners and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again. I believe I have found my solicitors for life!
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!
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.
