Transaction: BWB acted for Campbell Page Group Limited of Australia on transferring ownership of Campbell Page UK Limited (“Campbell Page UK”) - a charity registered in England and Wales - to WISE Ability.

Campbell Page UK is an experienced and well-established employment service specialist dedicated to transforming people’s lives by securing long-term employment for the most disadvantaged. WISE Ability and Campbell Page share similar histories of providing employment services and improving the lives of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community.

As well as dealing with contractual, corporate and commercial issues, given Campbell Page UK’s charitable status, this acquisition required a close working relationship between the Charity and Commercial departments of BWB to ensure that the transfer complied with UK charity law provisions and the technicalities relating to a company limited by guarantee.

Lawyers: Peter Bohm (Corporate & Commercial), Julian Blake (Charity and Social Enterprise), Gemma Boore (Corporate & Commercial), Victoria Cook (Employment) and David Duhig (Corporate Trainee).
