  • “In November last year, I sold my supplement brand, Prime Fifty to Cambridge Nutraceuticals.
    Jon at Andrew Jackson was my contact and managed the sale from day one, right through to the actual signing of the sale documents themselves. Jon made the sale process very efficient throughout.
    He was always at the end of his phone 24/7 helping me to understand the many complexities across the many documents involved in the process, ultimately ending up in a flawless sale with zero problems.”

  • "Selling any business can be difficult and stressful. When the business has been run by one family for 80 years, inevitably there are multiple shareholders and Trusts involved in the ownership. Although the Heads of Agreement were written on less than 2 pages, the documentation to implement our wishes took several hundred pages. Nick Scott, acting for Andrew Jackson, managed to translate the legal verbiage with great clarity into succinct, simple language we could all comprehend. Working to a predetermined completion date, inexorably led to an explosion of work during the final fortnight. Nick met this challenge by willingly working evenings and weekends when required. As head of our extended family may I express how grateful we all are for his tact, patience and perseverance throughout"
