Our Corporate team at O’Donnell Solicitors were pleased to act in the sale of Independent Workwear Solutions (IWS) to Elis UK. The sale of the long-standing Oldham Company, who provide work garments and protective wear alongside commercial laundry services to companies across the UK, involved several aspects, including the sale of the business assets and property. The company, founded in Oldham by Managing Director Michael Hall, has provided workwear rental and associated services for over ten years.
The deal is the latest in a long line of commercial transactions that O’Donnell Solicitors has completed this year so far.
Director James O’Donnell commented:
“The deal encompassed a number of challenging legal complexities which my team were able to advise and progress upon. My employment team, commercial property team and commercial/corporate team completed the deal on target through the month of August.
“It was a pleasure to assist owner Michael Hall and thank you to Halliday’s Xeinadin Group for their assistance on the financial due diligence aspects of the deal.
“Our congratulations to Michael, who has seen the Company grow from strength to strength. It is expected that the integration of the Company into the Elis Group will create a further growth opportunity for the business going forward.”
Michael Hall, Managing Director, commented:
“James and his team were very professional and quick to advise the way forward with the sale of my company. I appreciated the fact that the team was able to explain in plain English the technicalities of the deal when needed.
“Working alongside Halliday’s accountants they made a very good team”.
