Management Buy Out & Buy In

If the opportunity arises to acquire the business you are managing, it could be the most important opportunity of your career. However, MBOs are very complicated transactions, with many issues that need to be resolved simultaneously for the transaction to progress smoothly. As experienced advisers who have been involved in a large number of MBOs, we will help structure the deal, agree to the right price, conduct a thorough and commercial due diligence review, raise the financing, all while guiding you through the entire process.





Fund raising in either the private or public markets can be a complex, time consuming process, particularly for the client and can divert management attention form the day-to-day business. We will manage the process for management and its shareholders, therefore limiting the disruption to the business. Through our domestic and international network of equity and debt providers, we can access a wide pool of financial institutions and will select the most appropriate legal, accounting, brokering and other partners.
