We work with private equity and venture capital firms, as well as legal and accounting practices, to give honest, actionable and unbiased advice. Whatever the size of the deal and whatever skills you need, if you’re buying, selling, or merging a business, we’re with you.
Our mergers and acquisitions service
Our M&A services focus on supporting and augmenting you and your team throughout the deal cycle. We’ll even stick around post-completion should you need help with transition and integration. Given the opportunity, our supporting services support you creating longer term value in your business and synergies across your wider portfolio.
Our people pride themselves on understanding your priorities, speaking your language. Most importantly, we’ll not hide the truth. Even if this means challenging you when you need it most.
If you're selling a business and need help to get ready, we'll be able to help. Or, if you’re thinking of buying a business or you’re an investor, we can help with that too. Our people will work alongside you and with you, and we'll always tell you the truth and challenge you when you need it.
We can deliver technology due-diligence alongside your legal, commercial and financial teams. Or we can help fix the risks technology presents to the deal, and work with you on integration or dis-aggregation projects. We can provide impartial advice and support, and even expert interim staff if you need them.
