This article presents information related to leading technology boutique V-lex that was relaunched in London and Sheffield despite losing three directors after a deal to merge with Nabarro Nathanson fell through. Majority shareholder John Yates and the firm's other co-founder Helen Simpson shunned Nabarros' advances and restructured. V-lex enjoyed three years acting for international clients such as IT services company CSC on a string of deals, before revenues went flat in year four. The firm was forced to rethink its strategy and a move closer to the IT hotbed in London.
