RPL was founded by Geoff Rampton and Roger Penney in 2008. After chatting in a pub one day, they decided there was a gap in the commercial due diligence market for a partner-led, flexible and low-overhead firm focused on lower mid market transactions – and that they were the guys to fill it.


Since then, RPL has advised on over 200 projects and is now one of the UK market leaders of commercial due diligence for lower mid market deals. RPL has a loyal and long-standing client base because it concentrates on the strategic questions that matter, whilst providing the best value for money.


Today, RPL is led by founding director Geoff and assistant director, Suzy Urch. With over 25 years' experience in commercial due diligence, their industry knowledge and sector expertise is second to none. Roger has officially retired (after more than 20 years in the industry) but is still close to the firm and able to pass on his expertise as required.
