With five offices in the South East, Rix & Kay Solicitors LLP is considered 'ideal for larger transactions, but equally able to deliver a cost-effective solution for smaller transactions'. It provides full corporate and commercial services to local, national and overseas clients in sectors such as insurance, telecoms, healthcare and construction. Recent work included acting for the sellers on the sale of the entire issued share capital of Broadham Care to residential care specialist Elysium Healthcare. Group head Sara Carpenter is 'top class' and Alan Zeal 'is a consummate professional, who brings a wealth of experience to the table'. The firm's chairman Bruce Hayter is 'very solution oriented and focuses on what really matters.' Sevenoaks-based managing partner Richard Cripps has a wealth of corporate and secured-finance expertise. The team was further strengthened by the addition of Tim Sadka, who joined in September 2017 and, according to one client, 'brings a depth of experience and technical capability to an already effective and versatile team'.
