With offices in Windsor and London, Eton Bridge supports businesses to build the leadership teams they need to change, to grow and transform within the UK and internationally. This year, the firm ranked first in the Institute of Interim Management’s annual survey, having been in the top ten for the last ten years. The partnership with Elysian will see Eton Bridge continue to grow the offering and reach of the business.

Burges Salmon partner Richard Spink and director Tim Roberts led the team advising the shareholders of Eton Bridge, which comprised specialists from across the firm including Isaac Paine and Ellie Shanahan in the Corporate team, Pip Galland in Employment, Sam Moore in Tax and Chris Roberts in the Banking and Finance team.

Ashton Ward, Eton Bridge Managing Partner and co-founder, says: “Burges Salmon has provided an outstanding service on this transaction. We wanted to be supported by an authentic, pragmatic team, who delivered the right outcomes to the timetable. Burges Salmon was first class throughout and exceeded my expectations.”

Tim adds: “It’s great to have been involved with another fantastic business in the human capital sector. Eton Bridge’s acquisition by Elysian is an exciting next step for the talent solutions firm and its excellent management team. We wish them all the best in this new partnership which should allow them to grow the business still further while retaining its distinctive culture and values.”
