Testimonials - Kind words from previous clients

Our work speaks for itself. But these kind people were all sufficiently impressed to say some nice words about us.

"I really enjoyed working with Howard on the sale of our business and with his help and guidance throughout the whole process, he made what is often a complex, emotional and difficult journey really straightforward, offering the appropriate advice and support along the way. I couldn’t recommend Howard and his services enough. If you are considering selling (or buying) a business, then you definitely need to chat to this man."
Ian Warr - MD - Integratech Ltd
"We had the pleasure of working with Howard on the recent sale of both our businesses , all through the process he was able to manage expectations on both sides of the deal and was always focused on moving things forward . We can only say an absolute professional with a personal touch and an absolute pleasure to work alongside ! We cannot recommend his services highly enough and hope to work with him again in the not to distant future."
Adrian Melia - MD - Phoenix Seating Ltd
"I found out about Howard when he sent me a sales letter for a business he was selling at the time. It was so well written, so persuasive, I decided I'd hire Howard should I ever want to sell. The time came to do that this year, and Howard advised as planned. He did a fantastic job from start to finish. Organised, hard working, very friendly & approachable. You will deal directly with Howard all the way through too, which I think really made the difference. I have no doubt I'll work with Howard again, and would highly recommend him for buy/sell side advice on any deal."
John Jackson - MD - FLG Group Ltd
"Very responsive and good advice. The process was clearly explained from the outset. Howard was a good adviser and was flexible enough to work with our requirements, even though they weren't optimal from a transaction perspective. I'd describe them as a safe pair of hands to sell a business. No BS and no fluff - straight talking and pragmatic."
Alex Hawes - Group CEO - Amsys Technology Holdings Ltd
“I have been going to Lucas & Weston for over 10 years and have successfully purchased and sold companies with them.  I trust their knowledge and advice in every aspect of the deal.  Before going to Lucas & Weston, I struggled to find an experienced qualified business broker who could get the deals done and understand the valuations. I've dealt with larger firms in the industry who sign you on and then relegate you to an account manager with little or no experience.  It was a waste of time, money, and energy. Howard has a unique way of making a deal happen where both buyer and seller are satisfied. I wouldn't go anywhere else”
Paul O'Brien - MD - OD Fire Protection Ltd

“Thank you for your excellent work in selling this business. Having been on the market with three different brokers over the past two years, with no credible interest, we were delighted and surprised when you supplied two firm offers and a successful completion inside six months. Thank you very much for all your effort. I wish we had come to you first, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone seriously interested in selling their business”

We choose Lucas & Weston because we believed the service we would get would be very professional, personalised, energetic and that we would not be lost in an overload of clients taken on as a 'numbers game'. Also the pricing structure was fair and results orientated. We were not disappointed in any of our expectations.”

“I am writing to say a huge thank you for helping me to sell my business.

In many ways your business is much like that of a personal introduction agency. At Attractive Partners we aim to find a 'dream man or woman' for our clients and at Lucas & Weston you aim to find the ideal buyer for yours.

I gave you such a tall order – "Please try to find me a buyer who genuinely likes people and wants to make them happy, someone who will retain my staff and ideally me too and if possible rent our huge offices from me".

I was surprised that you were able to generate so much interest in Attractive Partners and I really can't thank you enough for finding me Chris and Ben, my 'dream buyers'.

Your advice and support throughout was much appreciated.”
Liz Fogarty

“Excellent, reliable and regular communications. Helpful discussions at each stage of the sale of the company. The timetable of events was regularly monitored and mainly maintained.”

“Very supportive - I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Lucas & Weston. Howard is always to the point and tells it as it is rather than telling me what I might prefer to hear. I appreciated this very much, as it enabled me to focus on the real situation more effectively. It has been a pleasure working with them.”
