Parties
“Going into this process, I had no idea how critical Oaklins Heritage would be to making this deal happen and to my eventual bottom-line. The team’s work ethic was undeniable and I felt like everything they did was in my best interest. After closing, the icing on the cake was when the buyer, who had completed 12 acquisitions in the 24 months prior, looked me in the eyes and said: ‘Heritage did an excellent job for you – it was a pleasure working with such consummate professionals’.”
