Barker Associates (Essex) Limited – EOT and EMI

by Tracy Evans

16 April 2024

We advised Barker Associates (Essex) Limited last year with its transition to employee ownership through the sale of the company to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) and, more recently the implementation of its Employee Management Incentive scheme.

Barker Associates is an established integrated property consultancy firm offering end-to-end services including project delivery, surveying, funding and energy and sustainability.

Following its sale to an Employee Ownership Trust, the Barker Associates’ EMI scheme represents a significant step in continuing to align its employee interests with the company’s long-term goals. Stuart White, Managing Partner of Barker Associates (Essex) Limited commented

“We believe that giving our employees a stake in the company is the best way to ensure that we continue to deliver innovative solutions and superior service to our clients. We also recognise employee ownership will foster a culture of collaboration and shared responsibility that will drive innovation and growth for years to come. We’re thrilled to embark on this new chapter in our company’s history, and we look forward to working with our employees to build a stronger, more sustainable business. We feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Tracy Evans of EMW Law who’s expert knowledge and advice in this area was instrumental in enabling a smooth transition to an Employee-Owned Business.”


Tracy Evans led the EMW team for this transaction, assisted by Hollie Tompkins. Also advising Barker Associates (Essex) Limited was Kingsley Tedder, founder of Mobius Group.

If you’re interested in employee engagement by selling to an EOT or implementing an EMI, please speak to Tracy Evans or one of our Corporate Team members.
