Our Corporate Finance services

Are you a corporation or private company looking to sell all or parts of your business?

We advise companies throughout all stages of the sale process, from defining the business to be divested, to evaluating your strategic and financial options, identifying domestic, international, corporate and financial buyers, and leading the negotiation process.

We have a wealth of experience through our global network and provide divestiture services ranging from a complex, multi-jurisdictional sale of a carve-out from a large corporation, to the sale of a domestic owner-managed business.

We understand the complexities and risks that arise when acquiring a company. Our team brings together experienced professionals from across our global network to help you uncover the right growth opportunities.

To help pinpoint the most promising way forward to capture growth, we assist in developing an acquisition strategy, identifying and approaching potential targets, valuation and negotiation considerations and coordinating the acquisition with your internal teams, external advisors and other parties involved in the transaction.

Our team advises businesses on all aspects of their debt and equity needs, helping borrowers and shareholders alike execute and achieve their financing objectives on the most advantageous terms, which include:

  • raising finance to support a growth or acquisition strategy
