Buying, selling or merging a business (M&A)

Whether you're buying, selling or merging a business, you need an adviser who understands your requirements. We take the time to get to know you. Tell us what you want. Then together we’ll navigate from start (approaching prospective buyers) to finish (making a smooth exit).

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A)

M&A is a simple, effective strategy for growing a business. Unfortunately, not a risk-free one. Your road to purchase can be long and bumpy, so it makes sense to consider more than one course of action.

Whether you’re based in the UK or overseas, our experienced team can help you at every step of the M&A process. Use us to help you identify suitable targets, consider valuations, carry out due diligence and negotiate with strength when the time comes. 

If you're looking to raise finance to fund an acquisition or organic growth, click here for more information. If you’re a trading business or have secured funding, and are looking to acquire a business for £3million+, fill out the form below for advice tailored to you.

Looking to sell your business?

In order to plan your exit route, you should explore your options and consider which of the below is best suited to you:

Trade sale

The sale to a competitor or private equity house, which has the potential to provide longer-term stability for your business and will offer you the highest exit value.

Management buy outs (MBOs)

The purchase of your shares by either other existing shareholders or new management. 

Employee ownership

The transfer of the ownership of your business to a trust, which holds the shares on behalf of your employees.
