Shorts advises on sale
Shorts recently teamed up with Keebles to act as lead adviser and legal representative to Alison and Anthony Corbett on the sale of Funeral Specialists JW Hutchinson to A.W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.
JW Hutchinson was established in 1904 and over four generations have served the region’s communities. It was an important consideration to find a buyer with similar values, when the owners decided to sell.
Andy Ryder, Corporate Finance Partner with Shorts, said: “We are delighted to have advised Alison and Anthony on the successful completion of this transaction, and we look forward to seeing the continuing success of the business under new ownership.”
Anthony and Alison Corbett said: “We were extremely happy that when we made the decision to sell J W Hutchinson we were able to agree a sale with another family owned funeral directors, A.W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.
"The families have known each other for generations so we know the company and its clients are in safe hands. We were supported through this from the start by both Shorts and Keebles, with their help and advice making what could have been a stressful time into a smooth and successful sale.”Back
