From the moment I was introduced to Postlethwaite…I knew we had the right solicitors to help us manage and negotiate the transition of TensCare to employee ownership. Postlethwaite solicitors were clear about the processes and benefits involved and upfront about their fees.

Working with Postlethwaite has made a complex transition easy, understandable and safe for all involved. They provided a first rate service at all stages of the process and the handover took place to the timetable we had asked for.

To obtain good advice on complex subjects such as share schemes it is easy to assume that you have to turn to very large legal firms, so it has been a joy to find in Postlethwaite a small, specialised team with many years of experience, which can unravel the intricacies of structuring and taxation – and explain them in a way that even a layman can understand. Robert and his team have been very easy to work with as they have helped us to review and update a scheme that had not been subject to this process for several years – all at a fraction of the cost that we would have incurred if we had used a ‘big name’ firm.

I recently strengthened my senior management team, with a view to expanding our business, and building on our successful platform. I have a strong belief that “ownership,” in the real sense, is a huge motivator.  For that reason, I have put a share incentive scheme in place to reward key individuals for their contribution to our success.  Initially, I spoke with the firm of lawyers who we use for standard corporate matters. They did not have the expertise to guide me through the complexities, and my subsequent search for a specialist led me to choose Postlethwaite.  I have been very impressed at how easy the whole process has been. Robert was able to clearly explain my options, and was very flexible in responding to changes I made along the way.  Perhaps it was the fact that Postlethwaite seems to reflect the same personal style of service I seek in my own business, that made me feel comfortable.  I have recently recommended them to a friend who is implementing a similar scheme.
