Business acquisitions

We advise UK companies, overseas corporates and family offices on acquisitions of both UK and internationally headquartered businesses.

Through our dedicated global sector research teams we identify high quality acquisition targets, often before they come to market, and provide concise analysis on the suitability and strategic fit of each potential target for our clients.

We are experienced at initiating contact and developing dialogue with business owners to create a positive environment for further conversations and sharing of key information.

We then assist our clients in valuing target companies, taking into account the financial and commercial benefits to be gained from an acquisition, and recommend the most suitable way to structure and finance a deal. We lead or assist the detail negotiations to achieve an agreed set of Heads of Terms, including an appropriate exclusivity period, and project manage the due diligence and legal stages, assisting you to appoint other advisers where necessary, to bring the deal to completion.
