The future of deals

Our Deals practice is split into five main areas:

  • Our Business Restructuring Services practice is one of the UK’s largest. Here we advise under-performing UK and European companies on restructuring, refinancing, accelerated mergers and acquisitions and insolvency – finding the best way forward for the business and its stakeholders.
  • In Corporate Finance we offer a full range of financial advisory services, from acquisitions and disposals for corporate and private equity clients, to advice on infrastructure, energy and public sector projects. We operate across all industry sectors – clients range from corporates and private equity houses, to major government departments and private sector contractors and developers.
  • In Forensic Services we help our clients to prepare for, respond to and emerge stronger from a wide range of business risks and issues. These include major public enquiries, rogue trader or bribery allegations, and commercial and transactional disputes across all industry sectors. We could be involved in any one, or all of these types of engagements.
  • In Transaction Services we support private equity firms, investment funds and corporate clients through mergers, acquisitions and disposals. Advising throughout the lifecycle of the deal, we work on both the buy and sell side of the work, where our people develop specialist sector understanding and build key skills in financial due diligence.
  • Our Valuations team are diverse and collaborative. They work alongside clients to support them in making key commercial and strategic valuation decisions on business deals or restructuring, disputes, tax regulation and financial reporting. Valuing a business involves a blend of technical and industry knowledge, commercial and market insight and an inquisitive mind.

The future of deals

There’s more data than ever before, but it is often hard to uncover the value behind the information. This leads businesses to overlook what could be meaningful intelligence that could be the crucial value driver for future mergers, acquisitions, disposals or restructuring activities. As a Deals specialist you’ll help our clients to cut through the complexities arising from too much data and unlock the opportunities, with our industry expertise and using the technology tools available to us.
