Så här sa vår uppdragsgivare

“It was a complex transaction that wouldn’t have been possible without the deep sub-sector expertise provided by Oaklins' team in the Netherlands together with the invaluable advice from the team at Oaklins Smith & Williamson. Oaklins’ joined-up approach of international reach and local execution helped deliver a uniquely competitive sale process; this was instrumental in the success of this deal. Oaklins added value at every stage and clearly understood our company and the industry. I don’t think we could possibly have been in better hands.”
