The team at EMW did a fantastic job for us from start to finish, including initial discussions, reviewing options, engaging with all parties involved in the deal, preparing and explaining the thorough legal documentation and addressing any risks or concerns. This was all done within the expected timescales and to the satisfaction of the entire MBO team which has given us a great platform from which to continue the sustainable growth of Darke & Taylor as an owner managed business.
