"We would like to express our appreciation to Stuart Newell of Chattertons (Lincoln office) for his excellent work, kindness and professionalism when dealing with the sale of our business. We thought the process would be simple and had not considered all the implications that could occur.

Stuarts diligence and patience helped us through the many problems and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others and it goes without saying we would definitely use him again."
Richard Brighton and Jane Renfrew

“I know it's been a while since we completed on the sale of our company but, on behalf of all the shareholders, I wanted to say thanks for the way you conducted the sale process, especially the issues regarding the share structure and negotiations with the buyer’s solicitors, to ensure that we got the deal completed. We appreciate that throughout the process you were willing to go the extra mile in response to the time pressures that we were placed under by the buyer, including working late nights and weekends as required.

Without your efforts I think the whole process could well have broken down and we could have been left without a buyer!

Thanks again on behalf of us all.”
