FRP expands offering following new acquisition

We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Bridgeshield Asset Management Limited (Bridgeshield) in a deal that marks our expansion into asset management services.

Headquartered in Essex, Bridgeshield provides property asset management advice to specialist short-term lenders across bridging, refurbishment and development finance. It supports lenders across the UK, advising on asset management, LPA receiverships and loan risk management.

As part of the transaction, all five employees will join FRP. This includes Bridgeshield’s Directors Ben Hubbard and Nick McAuliffe, who will both join FRP as Partners. They will continue to be based at their current office in Leigh-on-Sea and will work very closely with our national team of Restructuring Advisory specialists to support clients.
