Kreston Reeves’ most noteworthy deals from across the year include; the cross border sale of Farmura Environmental to Aquatrols Corp., the sale of Royal Warrant-holders G Burley & Sons to Business Growth Fund-backed TC Landscapes and the MBO of Burgess Marine, the UK’s largest independent marine engineering business, to name but a few.
This is not the first time that Kreston Reeves have been recognised at these awards.
