Claritas Tax are delighted to have advised the majority shareholders of Decipher Consulting, Paul Gibbons and Bill Bordill, on the sale of their business to the US headquartered multinational engineering and construction consulting firm DeSimone Consulting Engineering.

Matt Hodgson, Partner and Head of Claritas’s Manchester office commented: “Paul and Bill have built an incredibly strong and resilient business and have been involved in some of the UK’s highest profile construction projects over recent years, attracting the attention of global players such as DeSimone.  I believe Paul and Bill have found a great home and future for Decipher within the DeSimone group and I have no doubt their ongoing partnership will be a success for both parties.  A special thank you also so Peter Hully who led this transaction admirably from beginning to end.”
