Collas Crill has advised Guernsey Post Limited on its acquisition of Channel Island-based freight handling business, HRair.
HRair (previously Huelin-Renouf Air Freight) operates in Guernsey, Jersey and Heathrow and provides freight handling services to a number of leading delivery providers. It operates both air and sea freight business with significant links to various logistics companies.
Collas Crill acted as lead counsel with a team made up of Partner Matt Gilley, Of Counsel Fiona Wilson and Associate Alex Wileman-Smith. Collas Crill’s full service offering in both Jersey and Guernsey also allowed them to advise on various property aspects with advice provided by Partners Pamela Doherty (Jersey) and Paul Nettleship (Guernsey).
Of Counsel Fiona Wilson commented: “It is great to continue our longstanding relationship with Guernsey Post and assist them with what is a landmark acquisition for their business”.
Guernsey Post’s Finance Director Steve Sheridan added: “We are pleased to announce our acquisition of the HR Air business. Special thanks to Collas Crill for their timely, diligent legal advice throughout the process”.
