Mergers, acquisitions, disposals & buyouts

Disposals, acquisitions, mergers & joint ventures

We provide highly confidential M&A advice to sellers and buyers of companies.

We were recently commissioned by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales to produce its Corporate Finance Guideline entitled “Selling a family business”.


We actively work to assist in the realisation of buyout, including advising prospective vendors and management teams to achieve the realisation of the deal and raising the necessary finance.

For both M&A and buyout transactions, our services include:

  • Preparation for the transaction
  • Review and appraisal of the target company's business
  • Advice on reorganisation needed prior to a deal
  • Assistance with the preparation of a business plan
  • Assistance with raising finance required
  • Preparation of a descriptive memorandum
  • Identification of prospective purchasers
  • Confidential approaches to short-listed candidates
  • Leading the negotiation process
  • Co-ordination of other advisers involved in due diligence, documentation or other advice
  • Advice on the optimum price and deal structure
