M&A AND CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS

We help companies and investors foresee new opportunities, solve problems and efficiently drive transactions to close.

Our approach

It’s an exciting time to be in the market. Global trade, regulation and the equity and credit markets are shifting rapidly. We keep investors and executives ahead of the curve, helping them close transactions that fuel future growth.

Confidence in dealmaking is growing. We learn from the hundreds of deals each year what’s “market” and what’s changing. Our collective knowledge helps businesses grow through transformational transactions such as:

  • Mergers
  • Acquisitions
  • Divestitures
  • Joint ventures
  • Licensing
  • Other strategic agreements

But while the opportunities grow, closing the deal now takes more skill than ever.  We know how to spot and craft solutions to the issues that could derail a transaction—from developing creative ways to bridge gaps between buyers and sellers, to overcoming regulatory and legal hurdles.

Our goal is to help buyers stand apart from fierce competition for high-value targets and protect the future value of their investments.  And to provide sellers with sharp insight into the shifting dynamics of the market and the factors that impact value.

Who we work with 

Companies and private investors across sectors but especially in:

  • food, beverage and agriculture
  • health care
  • manufacturing
  • consumer products
  • Big Data and other technology
  • life sciences
