Greenwoods GRM is 'excellent - a first-class firm with a very strong team in commercial and corporate law', according to one client. Practice head David Woods relocated to Cambridge from the Peterborough office following Duncan Walker's departure to Bircham Dyson Bell. Clients remark that Woods is an excellent and experienced lawyer who offers the rare combination of very commercially-minded advice with a large degree of gravitas'. He recently advised the owner on the £57m sale of cleanroom and healthcare disposables manufacturer Nitritex, and acted for Stratagem IPM on the acquisition of Page Hargrave. Douglas Linette has niche expertise advising UK clients on business operations in Australia, given his role as a consultant to affiliated firm Kemp Strang.
