Gloucestershire law firm BPE Solicitors has acted for Garlands Leisure Ltd, provider of corporate team building events and development programmes, in its acquisition of Eventurous in a deal that sees Garlands expand its offering to include off-site event management and delivery.
Garlands Leisure Ltd, trading as Garlands Corporate, operates both team building and leadership development programmes at its Mythe Barn and Mythe Farm locations on the Warwickshire-Leicestershire border. Working with corporate clients to organise activities from archery to quad bikes for team building and corporate fun days, Garlands has a reputation for delivering excellent events for a range of businesses. Eventurous is a specialist provider of team building events at venues across the UK and has almost three decades of experience in designing and delivering events to suit the requirements of its clients.
Both will continue to trade as separate entities, working in parallel to provide corporate events throughout the country. Speaking of the deal, Jo Garland, Director of Garlands Corporate, said: “We chose BPE Solicitors to assist in the purchase through a recommendation from our accountants, Hazlewoods. Their fee was more competitive than other solicitors and they certainly drove the process to achieve a timely conclusion. The BPE team clearly has an excellent understanding of business sales and purchases and know what their clients want. We were delighted with them throughout.”
Tim Ward, Partner in the Corporate team at BPE, said: “It was a pleasure to work with and assist a thriving business like Garlands Corporate as they move into the next stage of their growth and development through the purchase of Eventurous. We pride ourselves on helping our clients achieve the best outcome that allows them to move forward with their business as it becomes an established name in a competitive market.”
“Receiving feedback like this is always rewarding,” continued Tim. “We strive to deliver the best service for our clients, and this is another example of the corporate team doing just that.”
The Corporate team at BPE has successfully completed 36 acquisition deals in the last 12 months, representing either the purchasing or selling business to achieve the best result.
