The Freeths legal team was led by Corporate Partner Andy Francey, supported by Senior Associate Megan Atack.

Commenting on the deal, Andy Francey said: “It’s been wonderful to see High Speed Training’s successes and the move to an Employee Owned Trust. This will help to future-proof the business with a strong focus on its workforce. As a trusted client, this deal highlights our strong capabilities in the sector.”
