RG have been a great support to Grove over the past 10 years as we have grown from a small IT services company into one of the fastest growing IT companies in the UK. As we have grown we have needed a breadth of skills and experience – RG has always been able to help- drawing on their depth and breadth/range of experience across their team. This has ranged from strategic reviews, corporate structuring, M&A, and company valuations. It has been a joy to work with them.
