Case studies - Neos Networks


Neos Networks is a national telecoms provider. It was ranked among the top 6 fastest growing technology companies in the UK.

Prior to establishing The Legal Partners, Richard Mullett co-ran Neos Networks and sold the company to Scottish & Southern Energy PLC.

As Neos Networks’ Legal Director, Richard Mullett raised over £50m of Debt and VC finance for the company, and dealt with all legal issues during its period of dramatic growth.

In his view, putting the business and legal issues in pristine order was key to achieving this highly successful sale to a major PLC.

“It is important to remove any opportunity for the purchaser to chip at the price when they do their due diligence. At Neos Networks we agreed clear contracts with all our customers and suppliers so that SSE could see what they were buying.”

We offer exactly this kind of practical legal advice, which is drawn from our own experience, to our clients at The Legal Partners.
