Mergers and Acquisitions

Our core work in M&A involves delivering domestic and cross-border transactions for public and private companies, often involving complex financing and structuring.  

Our strength and depth in this area is highlighted in our consistent ranking by Chambers and Partners as one of the top 10 firms in London for M&A deals up to £50m alongside the fact that we regularly advise clients on much larger deals.  We know what market practice looks like and are experienced in guiding both sellers and buyers through the process.

Our M&A clients include national and international companies, SMEs, private equity houses, growth capital funds, banks and other financial institutions, management teams, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals and our expertise is perfectly suited to help them drive their growth and secure their future success

We work closely with Parisi Tax to provide integrated tax advice to clients on transactions. The Parisi team have worked on over 150 transactions with us over the last seven years.

All clients receive a focused and outcome-driven service from experts with the ability to maximise opportunities. Clients particularly praise our team’s balance of innovative leadership and attention to detail.
