Foot Anstey has advised Marston Holdings, a provider of integrated technology-enabled solutions, on its acquisition of Grosvenor Services Group (GSG), supplier of specialist services to utilities.
Grosvenor Services Group is one of the UK's leading utilities field services agencies and has delivered debt collection services to the energy and water sectors for over 20 years.
Sheffield-based GSG will strengthen Marston Holdings' Engage service, a technology-driven field services provider that conducts over 50,000 visits to people, businesses and their properties every month across the UK and Ireland. Engage’s technical, engineer-led solutions will now be enhanced by a broader range of field-based expertise, providing clients with a full toolkit of responses to meet the challenges they face.
The Foot Anstey team was led by Adam McKenna (Managing Associate) and Beth Donnelly (Solicitor), who were supported by Ashley Avery (Partner) and James Barnett (Legal Director). This represents the fourth acquisition Foot Anstey has supported the Marston team on.
Mike Wolfenden, Managing Director of Engage, part of Marston Holdings, said “The acquisition of Grosvenor Services Group brings significant experience, capability and valued resource strengthening our service delivery and proposition."
Adam McKenna, Managing Associate at Foot Anstey commented: "We're delighted to have supported Marston on another acquisition to strengthen their offering in field services. We worked in collaboration with the team at Marston Holdings and we look forward to working with them again in the near future."
