Sale of Weird Fish

30 March 2010

We were delighted to act for founder Doug Tilling in the sale of the Weird Fish clothing company, which was completed last week (Friday 25th March).

Weird Fish was founded some 15 years ago and has grown to become one of the UK’s leading wholesale brands in the active lifestyle clothing market. The company, which has had its headquarters in Cheltenham for many years, recently moved to larger premises in Rutherford Way, Cheltenham. The MBO, which is supported by £8m of funding provided by Piper Private Equity (investors in clothing brands such as Boden), will enable Weird Fish to further develop and expand both its product range and direct sales operations.

Simon Brazier, a partner in our corporate team, who handled the sale, said: “We were delighted to act for the vendors in the sale of this highly successful, Cheltenham-based business to its management team.

“It was a pleasure to work with them once again and to see the business move into its next phase of growth.”

We have acted for Weird Fish for many years in the acquisition of shops in Bath, Cheltenham, Truro, Cowes and Weymouth and new headquarters in Cheltenham, as well as providing corporate legal support.
