The Technology Research Centre Limited were forming and growing their Science & Technology group. They develop their own and others’ breakthrough products and processes, then take these to market. Below, Andrew Miles, a Director, summarises what happened:

Initially recommended by our accountants, we obtained bespoke articles of association and shareholders agreements, then share options and several technology licences, from Altmore. More recently we entered into a relatively complex vision technology joint venture with a leading global fruit growing organisation.

Altmore Business Law has turned around everything we have thrown at it with alacrity, agility and clarity – this always with technical confidence and good humour. When the need has arisen, Altmore has negotiated successfully against much larger law firms.

The seller’s hive down was followed by a share sale then a follow–on share sale with deferred consideration arrangements and a voluntary liquidation. There were also due diligence and disclosure processes, a splitting of intellectual properties, a revision of distribution rights and termination of cross- shareholdings. Completion took place in stages and some signatories, when needed, were heavy weather sailing off NW Scotland! We got there in the end however and have used Altmore ever since for our corporate and commercial law requirements, such is the very high level of trust we have in them. Alan Drinkwater, Eclipse Digital Solutions Limited

Private Equity Buyout - £45m+

There were several large law firms acting and an awful lot going on.  I sought an accessible firm with the specialist experience to decipher, advise and reassure me personally.  The Chairman of another large group in the sector recommended Altmore Business Law.

One aspect of the work was Altmore’s production of separate notes assimilating and advising on key documents, terms and risks.  Manager share rights, warranty/ tax covenant profile, new employment terms, restrictive covenants and personal tax effects of entering the transaction, amongst others, were crucial topics for me. More broadly, I got a “reality check” that the myriads of complex documentation in all key respects corresponded with my understanding of the corporate structures and of my ongoing position (and everyone else’s) within the enlarged group.

My words to the firm just after closing? “I appreciate the hard work done on this, and the peace of mind it has given me.  You did your job well!"
