IBB Law Advises on the Buyout of Norwegian Log

IBB recently advised Ed Taylor and Paul Williams, the management team in the buy-out of Norwegian Log, on the terms of their equity arrangements with Ethos Partners. The IBB team consisted of Adam Dowdney, Partner, Ami Bhatt, Senior Associate and Nerys Dadey, Trainee Solicitor, in the Corporate & Commercial Team, Richard Devall, Partner and Jasmin Dhillon, Senior Associate in the Employment Team.

Norwegian Log manufactures and supplies a range of bespoke premium log building products to both private and commercial customers, across a range of end user verticals throughout the UK. The transaction achieved exit for the existing management and supported the new management to achieve the strategic growth of the business supported by equity investment from Ethos Partners.


Adam Dowdney said of the transaction:

We were delighted to act for Ed and Paul on this exciting management buy-out. We have no doubt the buyers will go from strength to strength with their strong leadership skills backed by the investment from Ethos. We wish them the very best for the future.


Ed Taylor, chief executive officer of Norwegian Log said:

Adam, Ami & the team at IBB provided invaluable advice on all aspects of our transaction, adopting a straight talking and pragmatic approach which helped drive the deal to completion. They acted with integrity and exemplary professionalism throughout – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.
