Tim Peppiatt, Paperhat Group CEO said:
“This is the third deal we’ve concluded using Charles Russell Speechlys and their work has been exemplary; they are viewed by myself and colleagues as an extension of our own team, not an outside provider. We will almost certainly be working with them again in coming year”.

“We are delighted to have completed another couple of deals for the Paperhat Group. We look forward to continuing to work with the Paperhat Group as it pursues its plans for expansion going forward.”
