B P Collins LLP has acted for the MOBILITAS SA, a specialist in global removal and relocation services, physical and digital records management, and heritage conservation, in its recent acquisition of Santa Fe Holdings Limited, the parent of Santa Fe Relocation and Sanelo. This strategic move represents a significant milestone for both organizations and sets the stage for accelerated growth, innovation, and enhanced value for customers.

B P Collins’ corporate team, led by partner David Smellie and supported by corporate solicitors, Alexander (Sasha) Martiyanov and Stella Seimeni; and corporate trainee, Josh Dickinson, was assisted by the employment and commercial property teams led by Jo Davis and Alison Taylor respectively and supported by property senior associate Simone Ganley.

Santa Fe Relocation is a global mobility company made up of 1,300 people, speaking 66 languages, working in 64 offices, in 38 countries, covering the entire relocation journey: Assignment Management, Compensation & Expenses, Corporate Immigration, Destination Services, and Moving Services.

Cédric Castro, CEO of the MOBILITAS Group stated, “We are very pleased to welcome Santa Fe Relocation and Sanelo to the MOBILITAS Group. Our group has extensive experience in operating multiple brands within various industries with each brand growing in its own market segment independently. Within the MOBILITAS group Santa Fe Relocation’s and Sanelo’s stories will continue and they will flourish.”

Alain Taieb, Chairman of Mobilitas Supervisory Board added, “We are very pleased to have chosen B P Collins to advise us on this acquisition. We felt like we were in a safe and experienced pair of hands and that any complications arising as part of the transaction were swiftly dealt with. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”

David Smellie, B P Collins’ corporate and commercial partner said, “B P Collins advised MOBILITAS SA on a property matter a few years ago, so the teams were delighted to be able to provide cross-practice support on this significant transaction. We look forward to working with Mobilitas in the future.  Whilst the transaction was completed in a very short time frame, the goodwill and humour of all made the long hours pass quickly.” B P Collins has extensive experience in advising corporate clients across all issues arising in M&A transactions combining the expertise of different practice groups to achieve the best results for its clients.
