Simon and the team at Thrings gave the company some great legal advice, as well as completing the deal in a short timeframe. This has been a genuinely enjoyable experience, but one that could have been very pressuring. We use Thrings for all legal aspects of the business and intend to keep working with the team as Mango Bikes continues to grow.
