Testimonial

“CHEC have used Cowgills firstly as our corporate accountants for 4 years and later as part of an M&A transaction. I can only say, I have found the corporate team at Cowgills, professional, honest, engaging and determined. Determined to fulfil the goals of the client. Cowgills undertook a professional and lightning-fast private equity partnership deal, informing me of developments every step of the way, including potential issues which were mitigated early.

My personal and corporate financial advisers remain with Cowgills and I have no ambition to move away from a winning team who truly look after clients.”

Imran Rahman – CEO of Community Health and Eyecare
