We work with companies and individuals who are seriously interested in buying one or more businesses. Not just any business, but specific, profiled and carefully selected businesses.
Our research methodology uncovers a significant number of suitable acquisition opportunities for virtually any brief. Our active engagement means that, whether for sale or not, we are able to speak to at least half of the target companies. And our experience in completion means that we get more deals over the line.
So, if you seriously want to acquire, then let’s talk. Call 01962 609 000, or send us an email.
Or, if you are interested in joining the team here, we have a job opening for a Consultant. Please take a look or pass on to anyone who may be interested in the role.
