Freeths add a bit of Zen to OfficeTeam acquisition

The Corporate team at Freeths has recently advised The Spicers-OfficeTeam Group Limited on its acquisition of ZenOffice Limited (“Zen”).

The Freeths team was led by partner Karl Jansen and senior associate Francis Dalton.

Zen is a provider of business supplies and services and is particularly well-known for its strengths in the managed print services sector.

The acquisition follows 8 years of consecutive growth for Zen and represents the 40th acquisition completed by Spicers-OfficeTeam, at a time when the dealer base is consolidating in an ever-changing market.

Karl Jansen, lead partner for Freeths commented:

“We are delighted to have supported OfficeTeam on this important acquisition. Zen has seen tremendous growth in recent years and the coming together of these two great businesses under the same group can only help further develop the business.”

Jeff Whiteway, CEO of Spicers-OfficeTeam commented:

“I have been impressed with the Freeths team on what was not the easiest of journeys! Great credit to you all – always a delight to have a commercially astute team of legal advisors by your side.”
