Spencer Group, which comprises land management and environmental services firm Spencer Environmental Care Associates (ECA) and geotechnical contractor and consultancy Quantum Geotechnic, has been taken over by RSK Group as part of the industry-leading acquisition.

The sellers of the Ceredigion-based land management specialist were advised by JCP Solicitors’ Corporate Commercial team, led by Betsan Powell.

Thanks to the acquisition, Spencer Group has been added to RSK Group’s global portfolio of 175 environmental, engineering and technical services businesses.

“We have supported Spencer Group over the past years, and I thank the board and shareholders for trusting our expertise to support them during the sale process.

“We were able to offer specialist advice and assistance throughout the sale thanks to the skill and professionalism of our team members including Director Michael Williams, and Senior Associate Solicitors Rhianydd Llewellyn-Thomas and Catherine Almeida. Their support was invaluable at every stage.”

Hywel John, Director at Spencer Group, said: “The advice we received from JCP Solicitors was expertly tailored to suit our sector and circumstances, meaning their guidance at every stage of the deal was second to none.
