What our clients say about us

Excellent service provided by Harbourside which we would certainly use again should the need arise. We were guided and advised throughout the sale of our business and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell, purchase or merge a business.

David Hake

It would be impossible to thank Ricki enough for all her hard work in obtaining such an excellent deal. She was always prepared to provide the services needed to take away any stress and strain and we could not have asked for anymore.

John Cooper Founder and MD of Cooper Drainage Supplies Ltd

The team helped me greatly to navigate the huge accounting and commercial complexities of this process.

Amin Khataee Founder and CEO of Bristol IT Limited
Bristol IT Limited

I was delighted with the outcome. Observing two sets of professionals conferring in a language I didn’t understand, with much nodding and the odd wry face, was comical. Being told the outcome was substantially more than I had steeled myself for was magical.

John Cunningham, Managing Director of Metrotile

I was fortunate enough to have Susannah and Ricki manage the commercial aspects of the sale of my UK and Australian businesses. Throughout entire journey they provided me with excellent advice, taking time to explain in detail each step along the way. I was always confident in their approach and they delivered a great result. I can highly recommend their services.

Shaun Spurrell, Managing Director
Spurco Holdings Limited

We could not have done it without you so well done and thank you very much.

Anthony Roupell
Bisley Shooting, Surrey Heath

I would like to thank Susannah and Olly for their professional expertise, dedicated support and diligence, not to mention determination, to complete this deal, especially as it’s taken place during very challenging trading conditions

Chris Holland
Managing Director, Waste Source Limited

No-one could have worked harder or more professionally than Susannah in helping us pass on the baton to the new team, who are looking to continue our hard work and commitment to providing
first class, relevant training services to all new and loyal customers.

Karen Cottrell
Bristol Management Centre, Bristol

The team did an incredible job of advising and guiding us through the complex and sometimes bewildering process of selling our business.

The sheer amount of work they put into getting us the right deal was far more than we could ever have expected and their willingness to regularly ‘go the extra mile’ to get the deal over the line, was hugely impressive.

Susannah and Ricki were a pleasure to work with throughout the process and the Procentia founders are all delighted with the deal that they have helped negotiate on our behalf”.

Steve Donkin, CEO
Procentia Limited

The team provided tremendous support throughout the transaction in a clear and friendly, but highly professional way.

Mark Jepp, Managing Director
Majestic Bingo, Spalding

The team provided expert guidance through a number of complexities on this transaction.

Olly Pullin’s excellent technical knowledge, coupled with a friendly, easy going manner and strong commercial acumen was a tremendous help in getting us to a fair deal for all parties.

Deian Glyn, MD
Manor Community Care Home Services

It has been a privilege to see you and your team work in such a professional and skilful way.

Sue Jenkins
Foxes Academy

Susannah provided invaluable help and advice where there was no clear precedent.

She completed a very detailed assessment of the commercial value of my clinical practice, led the negotiation process, assisted in drafting the sale contract and helped me structure the most tax efficient terms for the payout.

Dr Ian Hay
Portland Hospital, London

I’d like to thank you very much for all your work – very professional yet personal – I’m certainly pleased we used you!
