So what does this mean for you?

Our work starts with an idea from you which we help turn into a strategy, and then give substance to that strategy by working with you to do your deal. We help you identify targets, raise finance if needed or run the acquisition process.

And we help you realise the fruits of your labour by getting you the best deal when you decide to hang up your spurs. We cover our services on that front in greater detail in the Business Sales section in the web-site.

In many cases in this economic climate owner managers need to exit by a sale to a management team, whether it is the team already running the business (MBO) or an external team (MBI), or a mixture (BIMBO). We have long experience of advising management teams in this very sensitive area of negotiation.

Deals need finance, and businesses need finance for working capital and investment. We have extensive contacts in the debt and equity markets to enable us to help you raise the funds that your business needs.

When a business comes under financial pressure the timescales to do a deal which will retain at least some of the business’ going concern value are squeezed. We are comfortable in this territory with and draw on a combination of our corporate finance and recovery skills to get the best deal available and ensure that the transaction is handled properly.


Our work includes:

  • Business Sales
  • Strategic advice
  • Acquisitions including buy and build strategies
  • Management Buy outs and Buy ins
  • Raising Debt and Equity Finance
  • Accelerated business sales and acquisitions
