'Our firm has worked with [Nick Williams] and the RSM due diligence team on two separate transactions in the past 24 months. The team was very knowledgeable, responsive, and provided thorough and thoughtful analysis. As a buyer located in the U.S. acquiring a target in the U.K., the team was assisted us in getting up to speed on any unfamiliar issues. They were also able to provide us with the appropriate resources within their firm to assist us with structuring the transaction in a tax efficient manner that benefited both parties.'
