Growth ahead for Tunbridge Wells business
Law firm Cripps advised Tunbridge Wells independent stockbrokers Havelock Hunter on its merger with a nationwide firm, which it has undertaken in order to offer clients an enhanced service.
The company has merged with Redmayne-Bentley, which has 38 branches throughout the country. Havelock Hunter co-owner James Havelock Hunter said: “Becoming part of a larger group will bring many new benefits to our clients, whilst still enabling us to continue to provide the same level of personal service that our clients expect and deserve.”
The five-strong multi-disciplinary team from Cripps was led by partner Nigel Stanford, who said: “We were delighted to be part of the continued success of Havelock Hunter and to have been able to guide it through the merger process.
“It was a complicated deal taking several months and we advised on all aspects of the sale and after-sale tax position. The firm has been clients for a number of years and we are looking forward to continuing to help on their growth path.’
