Reasons our clients choose us

Avoid the dreaded burn-out problem

This is a moment in every deal  where a party has taken on too much.

When selling, for example, an owner gets so involved in the sale process that their business suffers.  They take their eye off the ball and performance goes south - along with their valuation.

We ensure that you stay in control of the process whilst retaining the capacity to maintain your core business.

Our real world experience

We have started, grown and successfully sold a business and bought several more in a corporate or private equity setting.   We know what it's taken for you to reach this point and what you're now trying to achieve.   
When dealing with emotive, often life-changing transactions, it's good to know you're working with someone who has walked the walk.

"This is a one-off, highly emotional and personal event.  Having an advisor who speaks your language and understands your position is a real success factor."   

The best deal for you

We can create a competitive market for your business.  A simple rule of supply and demand which means you get the best possible deal.  This is often overlooked.

Ensure your deal protects you

Our experience in buying and selling businesses means we know all the tricks in the book.  We can ensure your deal is commercially sound, professionally constructed and as de-risked as possible for you.
