IBB Law Advises on the Sale of Portman Compliance

IBB Law advised the shareholders of PortAll Limited (trading via Portman Compliance) and Nanstrad Limited (an associate company) in selling their shares to Compliancy Services Limited which included a roll-over for one of the shareholders. The IBB team consisted of Adam Dowdney, Partner, Ami Bhatt, Senior Associate and Nerys Dadey, Trainee Solicitor, in the Corporate & Commercial Team and Richard Devall, Partner in the Employment Team.

The disposal achieved the exit for the shareholders who were engaged in the compliance solution business and provided the company, and the rolled over shareholder who heads up the new division at Compliancy Services, with great future growth opportunities. This has achieved economies of scale and expertise for the whole team.

Adam Dowdney said of the transaction: “This was a really interesting transaction in an interesting sector. As always, the del was not without its complexities but the strength and breadth of the IBB team ensured a smooth transaction process and completion. We wish all the parties every success in the future”.

Nancy King, senior managing director, Compliancy Services said:  “Adam, Ami and the team helped us through one of the most daunting processes we’ve ever faced as owners of a relatively young business – selling it. They were patient, clear in their explanations of complex legal clauses and documents, which were completely alien to us, and were always on hand when we needed them at short notice.  In addition, we found Adam to be a calming presence with a cool head when we were all under pressure.  The team delivered everything that we as needed and will, no doubt, continue to do so when we need to call on them again in future!”
