Higgs helps leading property specialist build portfolio
Article date: 09/10/2013
Law firm Higgs & Sons has advised CPBigwood on its acquisition of DMA Chartered Surveyors based in Eastleigh, Hampshire.
The legal team was led by Higgs' corporate partner, Susheel Gupta, who was supported by lawyers from across the firm specialising in employment, property and commercial law.
The purchase gives Midlands-based CPBigwood a foothold in the south that the firm's board intends to grow. CPBigwood provides a complete range of property services to private and business clients across a range of disciplines which include sales, lettings, auctions and professional consultancy.
DMA Chartered Surveyors specialises exclusively in residential leasehold property and manages around 3,000 apartments and houses, primarily in Hampshire and Dorset.
Susheel has worked closely with the management team at CPBigwood on the deal for the last three months. Brett Williams, Partner at CPBigwood said: "We have worked with Higgs on a number of projects now and respect the advice given to us by Susheel and his team.
"Susheel understands our business, which ensures the process runs smoothly."
CPBigwood grew out of the merger of West Midlands property consultants Bigwood and Curry & Partners in June 2011, and since then CPBigwood have looked to grow through acquisition. This latest acquisition takes the number of properties managed by the firm to over 20,000 across 30 counties.
Higgs' highly respected corporate team continues to expand and this month was crowned Corporate Law Firm of the Year at Insider's Midlands Dealmaker Awards.
Speaking of the latest deal for CPBigwood, Susheel said: "Our ongoing relationship with CPBigwood enables us to fully understand its business and culture. This latest acquisition will compliment the existing business. We look forward to working with the team again in the months to come."
