What our clients say

Shani Zindel, Partner

Livingstone introduced us to ENRA in late 2013 as part of a formal fundraising process. They had previously worked with David Campbell who invested as Chairman earlier in the year. This initial deal was key to being able to present a rounded team and business poised for significant growth, and they did an excellent job building competitive excitement around the opportunity. We were thrilled when we won the deal. They subsequently worked on the West One acquisition, and when it came to the exit, they were a trusted and obvious choice to advise all the shareholders.They did a first class job in what was a complex and technically difficult deal, and we are very pleased with the outcome.”
