Regional law firm Birketts has advised Norfolk-based Autumn Foods on the acquisition of Reids of Norwich Ltd, which has annual revenues of more than £30million.

Birketts advised on all legal matters with Mark Henry, partner in Birketts’ corporate team, leading the transaction, supported by other specialists across the firm including Keith Andrews (property), Sophie Ransome (employment) and Karl Pocock (tax).

Autumn Foods said the acquisition will allow it to further enhance its position as a leading provider of poultry and meat produce to the worldwide wholesale market.

Geoffrey Buchanan, director at Autumn, said: “This is the second deal we have completed with Birketts corporate team in a year.

“Throughout the transaction the Birketts team was highly responsive and efficient. They ensured that the deal happened and delivered on a tight timetable.”

Mark Henry added: “I am delighted with the way that Birketts’ multi-disciplinary team met the demands of the transaction to help secure the next chapter in this East Anglian success story.”
