Corporate Finance

With a significant track record, both regionally and nationally, UNW’s Corporate Finance team is one of the largest in the North East by headcount and, therefore, capacity.

Delivering deals both within the region as well as leading complex multi-jurisdictional transactions, we can deploy full strength partner-led deal teams to work closely with our clients, supporting them every step of the way.

We are a credible and respected advisor to clients ranging from early-stage startups seeking funding and owner-managers de-risking or exiting, right through to large corporates and listed businesses making strategic acquisitions. We are trusted by sophisticated private equity investors deploying significant capital and have a track record of credibly offering advice to PLC boards.

UNW also supports companies applying for government grants and has provided technical support and due diligence for many national grant awarding bodies.
