Clive Owen LLP have recently helped us to secure a significant grant award which help us to accelerate our growth plans in the Tees Valley. Carl Wright and Neville Baldry provided excellent advice throughout the assignment, not only in completing the application pack, but also supporting us through the due diligence and contracting processes. Having consultancy support not only resulted in a more robust application, it also allowed us to focus on running the business. Carl and Neville also ensured our Group board were fully informed throughout the process, allowing them to make confident decisions on investment at the site. I would recommend the services of the Clive Owen grants advisory team to other businesses considering a grant application.

Right from the start of our bid application the Clive Owen Team explained each step thoroughly and logically. They were completely transparent regarding our application and acted with great integrity in ensuring our grant met the criteria of the fund to which they were applying before committing to work on our behalf. During the process itself they assisted us in ensuring that we provided the right information at the right time in a manner consistent with success. What would have been a very time consuming process for us which may not have achieved a successful outcome was made far simpler and effective using the excellent services offered by Clive Owen. Our bid application was complex and required much work. Throughout, the Clive Owen Team worked hard on our behalf to set the conditions for success. A necessarily complex and thorough process was made easy and painless by the team from Clive Owen. Not only would I have no hesitation in recommending them to others, I would also welcome the opportunity to work with them again. Clive Owen represent excellent value for money.

Obtaining grant support in North Yorkshire is not easy, the area is considered "low priority", however grants are available and to help support a substantial investment in our pie factory we sought to apply for a 'Local Enterprise Partnership Business Grant'. Having had previous applications turned down, on this occasion we enlisted the services of Clive Owen LLP and in particular their specialist partner Neville Baldry. Previously when we had applied without success, the failing in part was due to poor presentation, however in Neville we found a professional who knew his subject and made sure that we met all the criteria before the application was submitted, this is a key aspect. Through the auspices of Clive Owen LLP Neville did extremely well, additionally the cost was very reasonable and whole process completed in less than three months.
