    Consumer & Retail
    The Cavendish Consumer & Retail Group focuses on the sale of businesses in the consumer, products, retail and leisure sectors.

‘Cavendish took on the challenge of selling Robert Dyas against the background of a very difficult environment for retailers in general caused by the current economic downturn. However, they were undaunted by this and found a buyer that allowed existing shareholders to exit and for the Robert Dyas business to have a new owner who wants to expand and develop the business.’
