B P Collins LLP advises Biffa on its acquisition of PHS Chemical Waste
B P Collins has advised waste management giant Biffa on its purchase of PHS Chemical Waste from the PHS Group.
The acquired business collects, processes and disposes of hazardous waste on a national basis. It will be fully integrated into Biffa's Resource Recovery & Treatment Division.
The acquisition is in line with Biffa’s strategy, which aims to grow its UK-wide hazardous waste offering by consolidating its waste transfer station network.
The B P Collins’ Corporate and Commercial team, which recently picked up a national Legal 500 award, advised on the purchase and was led by Partners Alex Zachary and Diane Yarrow, supported by the firm's Employment and Property teams.
B P Collins has worked with Biffa's management team for almost 20 years providing acquisition support and advising on its growth strategy.
