The team is being led by Corporate Partner Russell Booker and Senior Associate Adam Cain, with the support of Associate Tarun Patel and Solicitor Philippa Ward. Incentives advice is being provided by Partner Lynette Jacobs and Associate Amy Sellers.

Commenting on the deal Booker said: “We’re delighted to have worked with Sweett Group and its management team on this key transaction to ensure that the best value is achieved through this deal. Sweett has been a valued client of the firm since we acted on the original AIM IPO and we wish the business well going forward.”
