Shakespeare Martineau advises Allied Irish Bank

Shakespeare Martineau acted for Allied Irish Bank (AIB) who provided term loan and asset finance facilities to support a £100m management buyout of DMS Demolition.

St Francis Group is one of the UK’s leading regeneration specialists and an expert in brownfield development and DSM Demolition (another arm of the Group) is one of the UK’s leading demolition and decommissioning companies. The restructuring of the Group, together with the new management team and additional investment by Metric Capital Partners LLP, will further enhance the value and growth of this Group.

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau has worked with AIB with for many years providing their clients with legal advice helping them achieve their growth aspirations. 
Naomi Tudor, partner and joint head of banking and finance sector, led the Shakespeare Martineau team commented on the deal: “It was great to be involved in one of the largest corporate deals in the West Midlands in this calendar year. From a banking perspective this transaction had a number of interesting structuring issues to consider which were challenging and it was very satisfying to be able to offer advice and solutions on those”.

"This is exactly why we like to work with people who understand the industry and can identify potential issues and create solutions."
