We instructed ZebraLC to carry out the technical and WIP due diligence in the acquisition of Lees. Zebra has an excellent reputation in personal injury WIP valuation. The project gave us an invaluable insight to the Firm.  Zoe and her team work in a discreet manner and follow a strict confidentiality protocol which is imperative in law firm acquisition. I recommend them highly.

ZebraLC™ was recommended to Fairpoint PLC as niche experts in WIP and technical due diligence with a unique offering. Assessing the recoverability and cash conversion of the WIP of the acquisition target formed a key part of our overall due diligence programme. Understanding and diligencing complex legal matters across a variety of contingent and non-contingent work-types required a particular blend of legal and financial expertise and this is exactly what ZebraLC brought to the evaluation process. Zoe and her team worked to tight deadlines and operated in a discreet and confidential manner, an absolute imperative for a publicly quoted company such as Fairpoint. We look forward to working with ZebraLC again.
