A few kind words from some of our happy clients:

Bill Grossart, Grossart Associates Ltd “The expert advice and support we received from Ownership Associates was superb. John and I felt we were in safe hands and it was great to have assistance in explaining to the team how it all worked.”

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Stuart Hutton, The Priory Hotel – “Carole’s support through the entire employee ownership transition process was invaluable in making sure we all knew what we were doing and getting the best results all round. She helped us navigate the legalities and requirements of the deal, and make the right decisions. The whole team at the Priory appreciate her input. We couldn’t have achieved such a great outcome without her.”

Dougal Philip, New Hopetoun Gardens – “Alistair and Carole guided and moved us through the fairly technical process of crafting the details of the Employee Ownership Trust, and patiently explained the various legal, financial and tax requirements and benefits of the model that we created together. They were the essential catalyst between our lawyers, accountants and ourselves.  Moving forwards they will remain available to make sure the whole process moves on smoothly and successfully, a very reassuring team to have behind us!”

Peter Millar, Aspire Housing & Personal Development Services – “Carole Leslie of Ownership Associates UK has been working closely with Aspire Housing & Personal Development Services over the past few years, culminating in our organisation transitioning to Employee Ownership. Throughout this process, Carole has provided unstinting support and her wealth of knowledge and experience in this field has been of great value to Aspire. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Carole to any organisation contemplating Employee Ownership……..or even tentatively curious about exploring its considerable potential benefits in taking conventionally structured companies onto another level.”

Des Brown, GS Brown – “Ownership Associates ensured our transition to employee ownership went smoothly. We are very happy with the outcome and particularly appreciate the support provided in communications with employees. This ensured we start this new chapter with everyone on board, all working towards the future success of GS Brown”
Dr Helen Erwood, ESPL Regulatory Consulting – “I’m delighted to have transferred the company to employee-ownership, Tony, Chris and I are looking forward to helping Jason and the ESPL team to steer ahead and continue to thrive for the foreseeable future. We’re very grateful to Carole Leslie of Ownership Associates for helping us navigate the process – she was great fun to work with”

Brian Combe, i4 Product Design – “Alistair was pivotal in helping support our company transition to employee ownership and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services. He imparts his incredible knowledge and breadth of experience not only with a calm delivery and real clarity, but also with a refreshing sprinkling of wit.”

Cathy Houston, Collective Architecture – “Incredibly helpful at every stage of the EO journey, equipping us all with the important tools in promoting EO.”

Iain Hutchison, Merlin ERD – “Alistair has spent his working life in corporate finance so he is a really good person to discuss succession options with because he has personal experience of all of the main solutions. He is innovative in his thinking, solutions driven and, perhaps best of all, brings a light touch and sense of humour to the table. He is a pleasure to work with.”
