Jacob Lyons - CR Investment Management
This was the first time we’d been through a transaction like this and Ian provided invaluable support by guiding us through the process and sharing their previous experience. That advice was critical and allowed us to get to a first closing. He was very proactive in thinking ahead and pre-empting issues before they came up. The Pinsent Masons team formed a very good bridge with our investors and dealt well with their very varied, complex and nuanced requirements. I found Ian and his team to be very commercial in their advice and they were, and continue to be, very valuable to us.
