Support for your business

Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions – often referred to as M&A – are a great way for businesses to grow as an alternative to natural “organic” growth or the acquisition of specific new talent.

We are experts in advising and guiding business owners through the M&A process, from the initial agreement of the sale terms to completion of the transaction. We work with both buyers and sellers, leading dozens of deals each year.


The M&A journey

The M&A journey can often be a complex one but we pride ourselves on removing the legal jargon and giving clear, concise and practical advice so our clients have the confidence to take important decisions about their transactions. 

We have a reputation for being commercial, pragmatic and effective whilst offering City quality legal advice.  We won’t just tell you the law, we’ll tell you what we think.

Working closely with colleagues in our Commercial, Property, Employment and Private Wealth Teams (as required) and with your other advisers, we can navigate the many financial, legal and practical considerations arising during the course of a transaction, over what is often a very tight time scale.

Our clients range from start-ups and SMEs through to national PLC businesses across a wide range of sectors.  We have long-standing relationships with a large number of our clients, many of whom have seen considerable growth through mergers and acquisitions, often evolving from small beginnings to become significant players in their markets. 

Buying or selling a business is one of the biggest commercial decisions you can make so whether you’re looking for advice on a one-off M&A transaction, or about to embark on a buy-and-build strategy, our team is expertly placed to guide you through the whole process.

Please contact a member of our team for advice on any of the following transactions:

  • Private company acquisitions and disposals
  • Public company takeovers
  • Mergers
