Aaron & Partners LLP’s Shrewsbury team is regarded by some as ‘among the top practices for commercial work in Shropshire’. Hugh Strickland is ‘a steady pair of hands and guides clients well through difficult times’ – he advised the selling shareholders of Rockford IT in SysGroup’s £4m purchase of the company, and in another deal with an AIM-listed buyer, advised the owners of Kingfisher Lighting on selling the business to Luceco for £10m. Strickland also handles deals concerning car dealerships. Stuart Haynes is ‘very easy to relate to at a professional level and very knowledgeable’ – he handles various commercial contract matters, such as advising Blue Prism Software on selling robotic process automation software, and continues to advise Heaven Health and Beauty on distribution agreements covering jurisdictions including Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates. He also continues to advise MTD Products, an American company, on the purchase of a British turf care business, and assisted on the sell side of a management buyout of McPhillips (Wellington).
