Farrow & Ball


Jamieson has advised the management team of Farrow & Ball, a global leader in high quality paint and wallpaper, on its sale to Ares Management L.P from European Capital Limited.

Based in Dorset, Farrow & Ball manufactures and sells premium paints and wallpaper, which are renowned for their sumptuous colours, richness of pigmentation and traditional craftsmanship. Founded in 1946, Farrow & Ball now has a network of more than 50 showrooms throughout Europe and North America and approximately 1,200 independent stockists across the globe.

The deal ensures that Farrow & Ball’s senior management will retain a minority stake in the business. Jamieson advised Farrow & Ball’s chief executive, Don Henshall, and the management team on the terms of the deal and their reinvestment alongside Ares.
