You will be working on real life situations on a real time basis. You will appreciate the importance of your work in assisting clients in their decision-making process and assist them in both exciting and difficult times. The nature of our work means you will always be presented with new opportunities and challenges.

Which part of deals should I choose?

Transaction Services and Corporate Finance

These areas support corporate clients, private equity firms and investment funds through mergers, acquisitions, disposals and raising finance.


Any organisation considering growing by acquisition needs to check all the assumptions it is making about that deal and determine a fair value for the target business. A thorough financial, commercial, operational and strategic due diligence exercise is important to confirm that there are no 'black holes'. Once satisfied in these areas, the organisation is likely to need help to structure the deal to minimise risk and to maximise funding and tax efficiency.


When a business is for sale – or selling off one of its parts – it needs to demonstrate its commercial and financial strength to potential buyers if value is to be maximised. It is key that the sales process is carefully managed to ensure that all relevant information is made available to the buyer in a controlled manner and that competitive tension between potential buyers is maximised.

Raising finance

We also help our clients by providing clear, practical and independent advice and assistance on all aspects of their capital and funding management, from strategy development to design and implementation of capital and funding solutions. In addition, keeping pace with the expectations, requirements and limitations of finance providers and understanding how best to work with the market to achieve growth is an increasingly important need for business.

Corporate Recovery and Insolvency

Where a business is facing financial distress or insolvency, we may be able to help save it if action is taken early enough.  For companies, their lenders, shareholders or other stakeholders in businesses facing financial under-performance or crisis, we deliver restructuring solutions and help build a platform for recovery.  Alternatively, we can help financial stakeholders to recover value in an insolvency.  Our experience and industry specialists enable us to tailor solutions to the individual circumstances and needs of our clients.
