Taylor Wessing continues to advise many of the UK's leading brands, such as Long Tall Sally, in line with our reputation as one of the UK's leading mid-market deals specialists."

Alison Doherty, COO of Long Tall Sally, said: "This transaction was a very important one for Long Tall Sally, and we are grateful to have had the highly experienced and commercially-minded team at Taylor Wessing team to guide us through it. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others."
