Bates Wells’ cross-departmental M&A team acted for Call Assist Limited on the acquisition of GEM Motoring Assist

Call Assist is the largest, independent, vehicle assistance provider in the UK.  GEM Motoring Assist is a leading breakdown recovery provider and has been ranked number one breakdown provider by Auto Express and Which?.

This acquisition demonstrates Bates Wells’ ability to work on complex M&A transactions involving unusual group structures and atypical legal vehicles (in this case a proprietary association) as well as excellent team work both internally and with our client.

Call Assist Limited said that they received “A very good experience during a complicated purchase. Bates Wells always listened to our requirements and found suitable solutions.
