Geoff Hazlewood, a partner in Ashtons Legal’s Corporate department led the team consisting of Damian Humphrey, Deborah Marshall and Adam Murphy.

Geoff said: “We are delighted to have advised Werner Neudecker and his fellow shareholders on this transaction, achieving a great result for them.  As with any transaction of this nature, it has required a lot of work to get everything done, but we have a good team with an excellent depth of knowledge and experience which has enabled us to deliver this result for our clients.”

Werner Neudecker said: “It is absolutely essential to have an experienced team on your side, it greatly improves the likelihood of a favourable outcome. It was the third time I have done this but no two deals are ever the same, so having a legal team with specific experience is key”.

Netcall plc were advised by the London Office of Taylor Wessing.
