International law firm Pinsent Masons is advising AIM-listed Sweett Group PLC on the recommended cash offer by Currie & Brown.

The offer values the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Sweett Group, a provider of professional services for the construction and management of building and infrastructure projects, at approximately £29 million.

Pinsent Masons also advised Sweett Group on a competing offer from WSP Global, which valued the company at approximately £24 million and was ultimately unsuccessful.

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. Head of Banking & Restructuring Martin Bishop and Senior Associate Anaïs Spacey are assisting on the banking aspects of the transaction.

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.”
