Sheffield Firms lead the way
Two leading Sheffield firms have been involved in the takeover deal of Wigan-based Lea Green Foods.
Irwin Mitchell – South Yorkshire Law Firm of the Year – advised buyers Regency Mowbray on the corporate legal issues involved while chartered accountants Strategic Corporate Finance advised on the funding issues. Strategic Corporate Finance traditionally specialises in disposals and finance raising services, so were called in for their expert financial knowledge.
Regency, which traditionally specialises in the manufacture of desserts, is based in Stafford. The deal sees them expanding into the North West with the acquisition of Lea Green Food.
