Paul Whittingham - Partner

Paul is Head of Business Services at Ashtons Legal and is a member of the Corporate & Commercial team. He has a particular interest in the acquisition and disposal of companies and businesses.

He has developed a reputation for putting clients at their ease and pitching the tone of his advice to a range of audiences from the inexperienced to the commercial literates.

Paul has acted for a number of independent veterinary practices in the past year when they have decided to sell their businesses. Most of the deals Paul has worked on have had values exceeding £1m and have included other areas of expertise such as employment and commercial property. Following on from the first veterinary transaction Paul worked on, he has been recommended by a major national acquirer and has subsequently worked on buying and selling veterinary practices all over the country.

Paul’s many years of experience mean that he has become recognized by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as a leading individual in his field. He is comfortable advising on a full range and scale of transactions, whether it is an individual investing in a local business or he is selling larger companies to international buyers.
