The FSP team led by partner Penelope Garden has advised J.P. McDougall & Co Limited, trading as Dulux Decorator Centres (DDC), on its acquisition of the business of Fenwick (Surrey) Limited and Dove’s Decorating Supplies Limited.

Fenwick, which trades as Trade Paints, operates three stores in Epsom, East Molesey and Sutton. DDC, building upon their series of successful acquisitions, has again enlisted the services of FSP to continue to boost its national presence.

These acquisitions will allow DDC to improve their capacity and service capability to ensure they can continue to provide top quality products and services to their customers as well as furthering their green initiatives by offering can recycling and sustainable products.

The FSP team comprised of Penelope Garden (partner, corporate), Rachael Maunder (partner, corporate), Alex Illingworth (solicitor, banking), Dean Bickford (partner, commercial property), Lauren Ellison (solicitor, commercial property), Ian Machray (partner, employment) and Jackie Denham (associate, employment).
