Waterfront has advised the shareholders of The Wandsworth Group, premium manufacturer of switch ranges and professional emergency call systems for hospitals and care facilities, on its sale to German building technology specialist and smart building pioneer Gira.

With the acquisition, Gira hopes to sustainably tap into the growth potential of the large British market through the existing brand recognition and sales strength of The Wandsworth Group that was founded in the UK in 1904.

The Waterfront team advising on the deal was led by partner Angus Young and included associates Charlotte Lang and Jo Stacy and partner Matt Cunningham.

Adam Sherry, Managing Director at The Wandsworth Group said, “the Waterfront team were a pleasure to work with. We found their advice and guidance invaluable. They demonstrated their clear depth of experience by ensuring that the deal was executed as smoothly as possible.”

Angus Young said, “we are delighted to have worked with Adam Sherry, David Swinnerton and The Wandsworth Group team to complete this exciting deal with Gira.”
