“Having overseen RAP since its foundation in 1994, the decision by the shareholders to sell the business was not easy. It was crucial to us that we found a global partner who shares our vision for the business and Oaklins Smith & Williamson’s international reach was key to this. Their hands-on support throughout the project has been first class and we would not hesitate to recommend them to other business owners.”
