I would like to thank Shoosmiths for both their corporate legal expertise and patience in ensuring we made a smooth transition to join The Access Group.

“Working directly with James Klein and Jessica Berkeley was a fantastic experience at all levels. Their professionalism, structured approach and legal expertise  made this whole experience enjoyable to achieve a successful outcome.  Thank you both for your patience and support to the Shareholders and myself, it was an absolute pleasure.”

James Klein, head of technology sector and corporate partner led the transaction for Shoosmiths, principally assisted by Jessica Berkeley, corporate associate and Caroline Airey, tax senior associate.

James said: “Our corporate team at Shoosmiths are pleased to have helped the shareholders on this sale to ensure a seamless transition for EasyBuild to join The Access Group to continue transforming the construction sector through technology to work smarter.”
