The deal completed in just a few weeks from heads of terms with Stuart Mathews, corporate partner leading the Trowers team, comprising lawyers from multiple specialisms including Corporate (Jonathon Holloway and Luke Cummings), Real Estate (Tom Craig and Lucie Allen), Employment (Tom Stephenson). Further professional advice and support was provided from Hannah Collison of Atkins Ferrie Chartered Accountants and Mike Easton of Vickery Holman.

Commenting on the sale, Simon Daw, selling shareholder of Gylly Beach Café, said: 

"We had an extremely ambitious timescale for this sale due to the buyers desire to operate the café during the busy August period and undaunted Trowers worked extremely hard to ensure this was achieved. It was a pleasure working with the team throughout this process and they helped achieve a great result for all concerned."
