About the team:

Our expertise covers Mergers and Acquisitions, MBOs and MBIs, business finance, corporate structuring and joint ventures.  We deal with around 30 transactions a year, with values ranging from £1m to £120m.  Our core range is between £5m and £30m enterprise value.  Whilst each client’s need is unique, the high levels of systems and processes we have developed combined with our experience ensure we can produce reliable results whilst containing costs.
