"Thank you Lyndsey and Andrew for guiding me and my team through the acquisition of Phoenix Foods with such calmness and patience. There is absolutely no way that we could have tackled this project without your extraordinary expertise, considered advice and excellent guidance. I very much look forward to working with you again."

Mike Kirby - Managing Director
Specialty Powders Holdings Ltd

"A massive thank you goes to Andrew, Lyndsey and Nick for your wonderful support and guidance. We are truly grateful for your efforts and contribution that led to a very successful deal. Taking into account the complex nature of the deal and the economic climate we feel that you had a critical part in ensuring the deal went through. Your professional approach combined with your vast experience made dealing with you a pleasure."

Founders of Bagel Nash

"I have worked with Andrew for a number of years and during that time I have come to rely on, and appreciate, his observations and advice. We completed an acquisition which was extremely challenging at times and required an inordinate amount of patience but, with Andrew’s guidance and determination, we got there in the end. We are currently working on further acquisitions!"

Private Investor

"We have been fortunate to work with Sterling and Lyndsey on many occasions. In particular we got involved in a transaction for a haulier earlier this year. The deal changed many times and became particularly tough because of the requirements of the traffic commissioners! Lyndsey did an amazing job in keeping funders, lawyers and the directors on track. We got there in the end thanks in no small part to the tenacity showed by Lyndsey."
