          DWF's London corporate team has advised the shareholders of William Martin Compliance Solutions Limited on its sale to AIM-listed support services group Marlowe plc for an implied total enterprise value of £30.0 million.

          William Martin is a leading technology-enabled provider of property-related health and safety audit and consultancy services.  It employs around 100 people across offices in London, Leeds and Norwich.

          David Wilson, founder and Managing Director of William Martin, said: “The team at DWF were highly professional throughout the transaction and always on the detail. They combined this with an extremely empathetic, relaxed and personable approach that put me at ease throughout the process. Importantly, they worked seamlessly with my corporate finance advisers to ensure that my objectives were both understood and delivered.”

          Alistair said: “Working with entrepreneurs like David further demonstrates our strengths in providing high-quality legal support to successful owner managers who are looking at the next opportunity for their businesses. This was a great transaction to work on and William Martin is now perfectly set to develop and grow with Marlowe."
