Sound advice and guidance

"Anval helped me from start to finish when buying my first practice. Their assistance with the purchase negotiations was invaluable. Over the years they have always provided sound advice and guidance, helping me tackle a range of staff and business development issues.  When I was under pressure to sell quickly, Anval helped me find the best possible buyer. I owe much of what I have achieved professionally to Anval and their support."

– Luis Sainz-Pardo


A happy outcome for all concerned

"After positive experience of Anval in the past, I turned to them for advice when the time came to navigate the journey towards retirement and sale of the practice. Ewan provided first-class assistance from my first contact with Anval; giving prompt attention to every enquiry, devising a plan of several options and completing a thorough valuation of the business. His advice formed the basis of a contract of sale to junior colleagues which was satisfactory to both parties and facilitated a happy outcome for all concerned.  I should certainly recommend Ewan and Anval as helpful, knowledgeable and efficient partners in decision-making about veterinary business affairs."

Expert guidance

"I recently decided to merge my small practice with another local practice. Undecided as to how to go about this procedure, I was advised by a veterinary colleague to approach Anval.

"The help that I received at Anval was constructive and sound and I felt reassured by their expert guidance.”

– Hugh Skinner MA, VetMB, MRCVS

Skill and integrity

“As a founding partner of Woodcroft Veterinary Group, I have seen the business grow from a two-vet practice in 1976 to the twenty-vet, six-centre group that it is today. Over the last 36 years there have been a number of changes to the partnership with some vets retiring and new ones joining the group. We have used the services of Anval at each of these changes to the partnership and thanks to their professionalism the negotiations have always gone smoothly, with Anval securing the trust of all parties.

“We have also acquired some local practices to join the group over the years and Anval has steered us through the valuations and negotiations with skill and integrity.

“I retired from the practice in 2010 and was very keen to leave on good terms with my partners after working with them for many years. Retiring from a practice and realising a fair price for the goodwill and assets has the potential to cause friction between the buyer and seller. I was very relieved to be able once again to call on the brokering services of Anval. Peter Gripper produced a valuation that was readily accepted by all parties, because with all Anval’s experience it was seen to be fair.

“The experiences of the group in using the services of Anval are testimony to the reasons why we would not hesitate to use them again in the future.”

– Harvey Locke, past president BVA

Reliable and trustworthy

“It was easy for me to choose Anval to represent me during the sale of my surgery, since I already knew a little about their reputation. I can now speak about that good reputation personally, through my direct contact with the company.

“Knowing that there is a reliable, trustworthy group of people, led by a veterinary surgeon, who are looking after your interests at a most stressful time, whilst you carry on your own business, is invaluable. To be informed continually about events as they unfold, and to know that your best interests are at the heart of Anval's work, is awe-inspiring. Thank you Peter and all the team.”
