Ogier’s Guernsey and Jersey offices assisted Waitrose, a
leading UK supermarket, acquire two substantial retail
businesses in Guernsey and three in Jersey. Lawyers from many
disciplines advised on the various legal aspects of the
transaction, which saw Waitrose acquire the supermarket stores
from the Sandpiper CI Group.
The Commercial Property, Corporate, Competition, Employment,
Pension and Employee Benefit teams provided the legal advice
on the acquisition, competition, corporate, regulatory,
insurance, property, employment and pension elements of the
deal. Ogier worked in conjunction with leading UK law
firm Eversheds on this acquisition which is believed to be the
most high value commercial property sale ever in Guernsey.
