Pannone Corporate has advised on the share sale of Detectronic– a specialist in sewer and wastewater network monitoring and management.

The Lancashire-based company was acquired for an undisclosed sum by environmental services business Adler and Allan Limited. This is A&A’s fourth acquisition in the utilities sector, and sixth overall in the last 18 months. The deal will further enhance its capabilities in wastewater telemetry and monitoring.

Pannone’s corporate team advised the shareholders of Detectronic, a long-standing client of the North West law firm. The team included corporate partner, Tom Hall, and Andrew Walsh, senior associate. They were supported by Renee Neophytou and Lizzie O’Leary.

Hall said: “Since we first started working with the team at Detectronic more than a decade ago, the company has built up an unrivalled reputation for its innovative and creative approach to environmental services, with extensive experience in sewer and wastewater management.

“The business has achieved enormous success in recent years and the sale to a company of the ambition of Adler and Allan marks an important chapter in Detectronic’s growth journey. As a long-standing and trusted client, we look forward to seeing how the company flourishes under the expert stewardship of Adler and Allan.”

Detectronic is an environmental and engineering company with a proven track record of helping customers prevent flooding and reduce pollution. It designs and manufactures a range of flow and level monitors for wastewater monitoring including LIDoTT, a market-leading range of sewer level monitoring devices.

Steve Woods, Executive Chairman at Detectronic, said: “We are delighted to be joining the Adler and Allan Group. The services it offers, combined with its established position in the utilities market, allows us to extend our expert monitoring and management solutions to more companies.”

Adler and Allan provides environmental services across utilities, energy, and industrial infrastructure, to reduce risk to the environment, people, and organisations.

Pannone Corporate has advised Europe’s leading call tracking provider, ResponseTap, on the sale to Infinity in an undisclosed deal.

The Manchester law firm acted as legal adviser to Salford-based ResponseTap, which was acquired by call intelligence provider, Infinity, from the company’s management and venture capital investors. The team was led by Tom Hall (Corporate Partner) and Arshnoor Amershi (Senior Associate), with support from Behzad Borang.

ResponseTap has built up a strong reputation for the development of highly innovative customer experience software to predict caller intent and personalise the call experience. This will combine with Infinity’s leading conversation analytics suite, which enhances its core call tracking services. It will allow the enlarged SaaS group – which has annual recurring revenues of £15 million, employing 135 staff – to better serve its 350 enterprise and over 1,000 SMB clients.

Tom Hall said: “We have worked alongside the founders of ResponseTap for the last 10 years, following the company on an impressive growth journey that has attracted significant interest from across the market.

“ResponseTap has developed and launched pioneering speech analytics technology, expanded beyond its North West roots to international territories, and built up an enviable client portfolio, including Virgin Money and luxury travel group, EFR Travel. It’s a real success story for the region and a significant deal within the marketplace.”
