Within: Corporate and commercial: Beds, Bucks, Herts, Middx

B P Collins LLP fields a team that 'understands clients' needs and compares well with City firms both on price and service'. The group has an extensive track record in the waste management, recycling, renewable energy, technology, food, logistics and pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, and has longstanding relationships with national and international clients such as Biffa Group. In an illustration of the depth of the firm's waste industry knowledge, practice head Alex Zachary    ('Very thorough and will stick to his guns where required') and solicitors Lucy Newman   and Dana Eyre  acted for Biffa Wast Services on its £4.9m acquisition of Amber Engineering, a waste management business in South Wales. In another key transactional highlight, David Smellie  acted for the shareholders of Martello Holdings on the sale of the company's issued share capital to Franki Foundations UK. Other key figures include technology sector specialist Simon Deans , whose clients include CliniMed and Rico Logistics; and Victoria Holland , whose expertise encompasses retail and leisure and professional services.
