Charles Russell Speechlys advised the selling shareholders on the sale of GPW Group Limited (GPW) to J.S. Held LCC (J.S. Held). GPW clients will now have access to J.S. Held’s specialised services, including forensic accounting and global investigations.

J.S. Held is a trusted global consulting firm providing specialised technical, scientific, financial, and advisory services. The firm provides a comprehensive suite of services, products, and data that enable clients to navigate complex, contentious, and often catastrophic situations.

Managing Director of GPW, Philip Worman said “In this pivotal time in the global economy, the two firms will provide an unrivalled offering to clients seeking to drive opportunities and minimise risk. I am grateful to Andrew and the rest of the CRS team for their help with the transaction.”

Corporate partner Andrew Clarke commented “We are delighted to have worked on the deal with Philip and his team. This is a significant move for GPW, and we look forward to seeing it go from strength to strength under J.S. Held.”

The team was led by Andrew Clarke and supported by Caroline Carter, Marc-Us Ong, Francesca Charlton, and Graham Crocker.
