We are the lead adviser on mergers, acquisitions and exit transactions. This includes target identification and initiation, transaction structuring, valuation, bid management, negotiation and stakeholder management.
We provide independent advice for other corporate initiatives, including restructurings, demergers, joint ventures, business sales and business unit divestments.
We represent both inbound acquirers seeking to enter and/or grow their presence in Australia and Australian firms seeking to extend their footprint into Asia, the Americas, the UK and Europe.
We maintain a comprehensive database on the professional services markets in Australia and the leading firms globally. It is our continuous research in the market that ensures our advice remains in context.
