Mergers and Acquisitions

The best way to maximise value in any merger, acquisition or disposal is to appoint the right adviser and to receive well-planned and tailored advice before, during and after any transaction.

Whilst selling or buying a business can be a great opportunity to realise or create value, corporate transactions can be extremely complex and time consuming. Many business owners may only experience this type of transaction once in their lifetime, therefore being able to call upon the right experience is paramount to getting a deal that is tailored to your needs and aspirations.

Our team have dealt with and advised on countless transactions, with decades of experience at our clients’ disposal to make sure that any transaction is as smooth as possible with end-to-end project management. We also work collaboratively across the firm to provide a range of advice across all specialities including corporate tax, employment tax and VAT.

We work across all industry sectors, and have advised more recently in engineering, technology and dental. We specialise in transacting, meaning that our clients receive the best transaction advice irrespective of industry.

Our team are also able to offer additional advisory services to support any process, including raising finance for a transaction, performing financial and tax due diligence or modelling the impact of a transaction.
