asb corporate team adds to expertise

Leading regional law firm and KCFA member, asb law, has welcomed Brendan Roodt to its top-ranked corporate finance team.  Previously with Brachers, Brendan will play a key role in business development and supporting asb’s clients across the region.

Brendan has 15 years’ experience in corporate and commercial law and is qualified in both England and South Africa.  He works predominantly with SMEs and owner-managed businesses, focusing on mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and major commercial transactions.

In recent years Brendan has also developed specialist knowledge and expertise in advising schools on how to become Academies, and has advised on more than 25 conversions.

According to Brendan, the fact that asb has excellent credentials in corporate finance and a growing reputation in the charities and education sector is a winning combination:  “Transferring a school from one funded, structured environment to another as a going concern is essentially a corporate transaction that few education specialists have experience of; asb’s expertise in both sectors offers a unique insight and skill set to support those schools looking to transfer to academy status.”

Helen Mead, head of the corporate finance team, said: “Brendan is another strong recruit into the firm; his arrival not only enhances further our offering in the corporate arena, but his specialist knowledge will play a key role in developing the services we already provide into the education sector.”

Appointed as an Associate, Brendan will be based at asb’s Maidstone office.

asb law has been an established presence in the south east for many years; with regional centres in both Crawley and Maidstone it provides a range of legal services to businesses, public sector bodies and a significant number of individual clients.  asb is recognised as a leading firm by both major legal industry publications, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.
