I am an experienced Senior Associate with more than 14 years’ experience working with commercial and private clients. I specialise in the sale and purchase of businesses and companies as well as corporate restructures. Working with predominantly owner managed businesses, my client base extends across Europe and North America. I also work closely with our wealth preservation team within our private client department on the restructuring of family companies as part of their future planning.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking with my dog, growing my own fruit and vegetables, and playing badminton.
Your undoubted tenacity in achieving the goal clearly made for as-smooth-a process as we could have asked for, something we were grateful for. Your Company was selected on the recommendation of another of your customers and well founded it was for anyone wanting to “make the sale happen"R. David Isaac, Johnsons Garden Centre
We had an initial meeting with Nigel [Moore] at which he ran through various scenarios and highlighted the main points when selling a company. When we did meet with our future purchaser, we followed the guidance given by Nigel which proved to be invaluable and enabled us to start off on the right foot in the right direction. Throughout the whole sale and due diligence process, the team headed up by Katy Poole, ran the operation like clockwork. We had a very tight deadline and at each stage with Buckles guidance we hit each deadline and successfully completed on time.Tim Robson, founder of Robsons (of Spalding)
One of the key reasons we selected Buckles and particularly Katy [Poole] to represent us was that we wanted someone we could trust implicitly. Someone who would challenge us but solely with the intention of getting the best result for the family. We were working to a very tight timeline, on a virtual sale with multiple shareholders so it wasn't easy yet Katy helped keep all the parts moving along. Katy was extremely thorough and patient with our many questions. I was constantly amazed at the effort and hours she put in to protect our interests.Crispin Moger, founder of Marmalade Insurance
