Legal firm blossoms in floral deal.

DUDLEY-based law firm Hawkins Hatton enjoyed the sweet smell of success when it advised The British Florist Association on its purchase of the Society of Floristry.

The acquisition has increased the BFA's membership by 700 to 3,200, making it the UK's largest independent trade association for florists and the second largest in Europe.

Acknowledged as the 'voice of the industry,' the BFA represents nearly 6,500 florists.

It is the only sector trade association to be recognised by the UK Government and in Brussels.

Hawkins Hatton, led by corporate partner Colin Rodrigues, handled all legal aspects of the acquisition, including the drawing up of heads of terms.

"We were delighted to be able to support this deal," said Mr Rodrigues.
