Our approach focuses attention on the individual needs of owners and individuals wishing to realise value or make investments in growing businesses. We create deals by matching businesses and people, and by designing financial structures that suit all circumstances. We aim to make the process as smooth as possible by co-ordinating the services of all involved including lawyers, bankers, venture capitalists and individual investors.
Our Corporate Finance Team seeks out ways of enhancing and protecting clients’ value through proactive and creative deal work. Experience includes management buy-ins and buy-outs along with more traditional acquisition and merger activity. Our team of specialist partners and staff has a wide variety of experience in public and private company deals. This experience, along with an excellent network of contacts, gives us the ability to produce creative and effective solutions to deals.
