Specialist finance lawyers at Walker Morris have advised on NorthEdge Capital’s multimillion investment in Help-Link.

The boiler and central heating specialist will also see an investment behind a new management team and strategic direction.

Simon Clark, partner and Claire Askew, associate, led a team including John Hamer, Michael Taylor at Walker Morris advising Help-Link and NorthEdge in respect of this significant transaction.

Former Endless LLP partner, Warwick Ley, has been appointed chairman and Richard Harrison, the former managing director of online car retailer WeBuyAnyCar, will take over as Chief Executive.

The business will withdraw from the Energy Companies Obligation market, and instead, focus on its growing market share in the private boiler market, where it is already the second largest player behind British Gas.

Warwick Ley commented:

“Help-Link has a unique opportunity to generate significant growth. To capitalise on this, we have driven a lot of change during 2015 which has only been possible through the first class support from NorthEdge.”

Simon Clark commented:

“It has been great to contribute towards achieving this investment for Help-Link. We wish the business every success. It has been a pleasure working with Warwick and his team at Help-Link and Dan and his team at NorthEdge”
