Capital Restructuring

Rossi Long Consulting Logo

JDC first acted for us in our MBO from URS Scott Wilson in 2012 and have since become valued advisers to our business.  In our recent Capital Restructuring JDC designed a succession structure for us which ‘ticked all the boxes’ for the shareholders and have once again come up trumps. Many thanks again JDC!
