About the deal

Beechfield was established in 1994 by Roger McHugh and Paul Persey. In 2006, Rickitt Mitchell advised Roger McHugh in a management buy-out, which saw Paul dispose of his entire shareholding and Roger become the majority shareholder through a new holding company, Beechfield Brands Holdings Limited.

"It was very reassuring to have an experienced adviser that I trusted to give me the right advice and steer the management buy-out process in the right direction. Brian and Neil devised a structure for the deal that avoided the need for third party equity and gave me complete control of the company. I have kept in touch after the deal and can call anytime to discuss issues where I need a second opinion"
