Smooth sailing on sale of Boxx Communications to Focus Group

‘Helping the co-founders Dean Burgin and James Green to sell Boxx Communications to Focus Group has been a real pleasure and smooth deal to have been involved with’ says Danielle Austin, Senior Associate Solicitor and lead adviser.

Boxx Communications was founded in 2011 with the aim to source and supply high value, low-cost telecommunication and connectivity solutions to small businesses within the UK. It has since grown organically servicing numerous and recognisable clients across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. The success of the founders’ approach has been recognised externally, garnering numerous industry awards and nominations.

Since 2018 Boxx had a good working relationship with Focus Group, a leading provider of essential business technology, and its founder and directors Ralph Gilbert and Chris Goodman.

Ralph Gilbert said of the deal: ‘When the opportunity arose to acquire Boxx Communications, the decision was an easy one. Beyond their clear commitment to service excellence and an enviable organic growth trajectory, the team at Boxx are quite simply the nicest people in Telecoms!’

‘Boxx Communications are well known in the Milton Keynes business community,’ agreed Danielle Austin. ‘They have an excellent reputation for high levels of customer service across the region, so we were thrilled when Dean and James selected Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors to advise them on the sale of Boxx Communications to Focus Group’

Dean Burgin said of the deal “Danielle truly excelled as our representative in the sale of Boxx Communications. Her efficiency and patience, mixed with a keen sense of commercial sensibility, were instrumental in accomplishing the deal in an impressive timeframe.”

James Green added “Danielle and the team at Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors did an outstanding job representing us in the sale of Boxx Communications. Her combination of efficiency, patience, and sharp commercial insight played a crucial role in achieving this deal swiftly and smoothly.”

Danielle Austin was assisted on the transaction by Corporate Solicitor Gemma Gurney and Employment Partner Paula Stuart. Dean Burgin remains with the company.

When asked about the future, Dean added “Boxx has been a success by truly connecting with local businesses and their goals. We can now unlock endless possibilities through The Focus Group portfolio. I’m looking forward to continuing this thrilling journey in Milton Keynes – a city where every challenge is a chance to innovate and thrive!”
