Mr and Mrs F of Rugby said of Attwells:
“The team at Attwells completed the sale of our company in February 2016. This was a huge and potentially stressful matter for us as we had owned the business since 1983. We were very pleased with the way that the sale was handled by the team and would have no hesitation in recommending Attwells to any future business owners. The team was always accessible and available, explained matters using plain English and helped guide us through the paperwork without stress. Contracts were exchanged by the team at 9.30pm and completed at 8am. The team at Attwells were always there to get it done. In addition to the legal work the team also assisted in renegotiating the terms of the leaseback to the company which meant we received some extra years of secure income. We would consider Attwells our trusted advisors and lawyers.
