Our team: Julian Lewis
Fladgate LLP has acted for Jamie Barber, bar and restaurant entrepreneur and owner of Hush, and his co-shareholders on the sale of the high-end Japanese restaurant Sake No Hana to Hakkasan Ltd for an undisclosed sum. Olswang LLP acted for Hakkasan.
This transaction was the second time Fladgate has acted for Mr Barber, having been first instructed by him and his co-shareholders on the sale of the Villandry restaurant business to Maison Madeleine Limited earlier in the year. Maison Madeleine Limited was advised by Macfarlanes LLP.
On both transactions corporate partner Julian Lewis led the team.
Commenting on the transactions Julian said: “We are delighted to have assisted Jamie and his partners in completing this sale and wish Hakkasan every success with this latest venture. We are looking forward to working with Jamie and his team in relation to his other restaurants.”
Mr Barber added: “I have very much appreciated the work that the Fladgate team have put into these transactions, as much for the user-friendly way in which they have provided their services as for the genuinely commercial legal advice that they have given.”
