Birketts, the top 100 law firm based in East Anglia, has advised Vision Group (Holdings) Limited on the acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Abbey Business Equipment Limited. The financial value of the deal was undisclosed.

Adrian Seagers, who led the transaction on behalf of Birketts with support from Stephanie Newman, said: “The acquisition is part of Vision’s strategy to grow its business in the UK. It has been an absolute pleasure to advise Vision’s management team through the process and I am sure their business will continue to go from strength-to-strength.”

Phil Bond, Chief Executive Officer at Vision said: “Throughout the acquisition the team at Birketts was transparent and upfront about timetables, processes, outcomes and costs. They understood our requirements and provided certainty throughout.”
