Sale of Baily Garner (Health & Safety)

A team from the Corporate and Commercial department at CooperBurnett LLP, led by Partner Victoria Sampson, has advised the vendor shareholders in their exit from and sale of Baily Garner (Health & Safety) Ltd to insurance intermediary PIB Group.

Based in London, Baily Garner (Health & Safety) Ltd is a construction health & safety risk management specialist, providing practical and reliable principal designer and CDM advisor services, incorporating site inspections and health & safety audits across a range of sectors UK wide.

“At CooperBurnett we have advised Paul [Lennon] for many years and are very pleased to have supported him and his co-shareholders in their sale to PIB Group,” says Victoria. “We worked within strict time parameters to achieve the desired outcome and thoroughly enjoyed working with our clients, and Nigel Kimber and Anthony Hawkins from McBrides Corporate Finance, to get this deal over the line.”

Victoria, Jonathan Rowe, Katie Hilsdon, Natasha Smith and Carla Loveday from CooperBurnett worked alongside the corporate finance team at accountancy firm McBrides, who dealt with the initial value assessment for the business and marketed the company for sale, negotiating terms with the preferred purchaser. McBrides was instrumental in keeping the parties focused.

“We could not have managed the sale of the business without the sterling help, advice, guidance and magnificent support from the legal team at CooperBurnett and the corporate finance team at McBrides,” says Paul Lennon. “I have nothing but praise for Victoria Sampson and Carla Loveday at CooperBurnett and Nigel Kimber and Anthony Hawkins at McBrides and would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone contemplating a business sale.”

He adds: “We are excited for Baily Garner (Health & Safety) Ltd and the prospect to further develop the risk management portfolio with the PIB Group, none of which would have been possible without CooperBurnett and McBrides. My sincere and grateful thanks to both organisations.”
