Working with the right adviser from the outset is key to gaining a commerical advantage.

The health, social care and specialist education expertise within our Corporate Finance advisory team means we really get to know what it is you want - we understand the varying sectors in which you operate and are aware of the current opportunities or challenges you face. 

Combined with our extensive knowledge of the buyer landscape, as well as our active experience in leading trade sales, MBOs, partial exits and many other forms of business disposal, we are in a strong position to guide you throughout the process, ensuring you preserve and realise maximum value.

Completing a deal
