We act for publicly quoted and private companies, as well as entrepreneurs and shareholders, to offer an extensive range of transactional and advisory services. Successful businesses are constantly growing, changing and expanding, whether organically or by acquisition. Our bespoke approach provides timely and succinct reports to directors, shareholders and finance providers and has given us a reputation for delivering real value at a cost effective price.
We offer comprehensive advice on how to structure transactions tax efficiently, such as acquisitions, disposals, restructuring, mergers, demergers, reconstructions and IPOs. We also have a great deal of expertise in obtaining clearance from HM Revenue & Customs for transactions where appropriate. Buying and selling a business or part of a business can prove a huge distraction to the investors, targets and the management team. This tension inevitably distracts focus from the day to day operations. Our multi-disciplinary team of experienced partners and staff can ease some of this burden while ensuring that a calm eye is kept on the financial and commercial opportunities which these changes inevitably bring.
The areas where we typically might provide support include transaction advice and support, acquisition and disposal related tax and VAT advice, pre-disposal health checks, financial and tax due diligence (for vendor or buyer), exit route planning for investors, management buy-outs and buy-ins, key employee retention and incentivisation and succession planning.
Our approach to all transactional due diligence work is to ensure that our partners and senior staff fully participate in the project, ensuring that our subsequent advice focuses on the key issues that we see facing the transaction and is provided by those with sufficient experience to give such advice.
