Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)
Expert support, whether you’re buying or being acquired.
For many businesses, an exit represents the culmination of many years of hard graft. And yet, sellers can often feel exposed as buyers’ due diligence teams pore over digital reams of paper, looking for things that might impair the value of the deal they’re about to enter into.
On the other hand, buyers need to ensure they have a clear understanding of what they are buying and whether there are any issues that could make them regret their decision in the longer term.
Some of the ways we support with M&As
From earn-outs to the terms and conditions of the takeover, negotiating deal structure is essential for successful completion.
Due diligence is the one part of the completion process that you hurry at your own risk. We ensure that due diligence is carried out correctly, efficiently, and thoroughly.
We help with forward planning during the engagement phase, and also help clients to deliver on plans once the deal concludes.
