The team at Ashfords have been a truly great business partner for us throughout the entire process. Their technical support and sensible commercial guidance has been invaluable. They avoided unnecessary legal jargon and cut to the point of things we needed to understand, identifying risk and finding solutions, resulting in a successful transaction.
