Shoosmiths LLP's Milton Keynes office works closely with offices across the South East and Nationwide, making the firm a compelling offering in the Thames Valley for corporate, private equity, venture capital and M&A transactions. On the commercial front, the automotive sector is a particular area of strength; headed by Robin Webb , who also leads the commercial team in Milton Keynes, the national sector group regularly handles cutting-edge, complex and cross-border commercial contract and technology projects. Recent highlights include advising Volkswagen Group United Kingdom on the procurement of telephony and data network services for use across its trade parts centres, which involved liaising with multiple stakeholders and handling numerous rounds of negotiation with the supplier. Other areas of expertise for the commercial team include the food and drink and retail sectors, where clients include a number of household names. The corporate department is headed by Sanjeev Sharma, who splits his time between Milton Keynes and Reading, and includes private equity expert Amit Nayyar. Nayyar acted alongside senior associates Jason Hill and Iain Butler, as well as associate Claire Checketts, for Five Arrows Principal Investments on a competitive auction process and sale of Educo One, a specialist education provider for people with autism, to Antin Infrastructure Partners. Other highlights included advising Foundation Investment Partners on its initial acquisition and buy and build strategy to create the Pro-Vets Group, as well as the subsequent £65m sale of the group to Independent Vetcare, one of the largest vet groups in the UK.
