Entrust Datacard's Miles Widstrom, Senior Corporate Attorney, said "Thank you for all the hard work that the Wilsons' team had to put in over the last couple of weeks. I know you had to balance a lot of other client commitments and the work required was far more than anyone anticipated, so I appreciate your efforts and sound advice greatly."
Philip Stephenson said "We are delighted to have acted for and supported this long standing and valued client on their strategic acquisition of Trustis Limited. This deal had some structural challenges that needed to be overcome in a tight timeframe. It was one of 3 significant transactions that the Wilsons' corporate team completed in the space of one week and demonstrates our reputation and expertise in advising acquisitive, growing businesses."
