Corporate finance

Our award winning Corporate Finance team celebrated completing the most deals in the Eastern region in 2020 according to Experian and followed this up with another strong placing in 2021. Their strong commercial acumen is invaluable in transactions and has contributed to their consistent shortlisting in the Central and East Dealmaker awards, with Corporate Finance Director, Simon Martin, winning Emerging Dealmaker of the year in 2021 and the team advising on the Private Equity deal of the Year in 2020.

Corporate Finance Partner, David Scrivener, has been nominated for Dealmaker of the year at each of the last 4 years Central and East Dealmaker awards, having also previously won 'Dealmaker of the Year' at the Emerging Leaders M&A awards.

Whether you are looking to acquire or sell, undertake a management buy-out or buy-in, implement an employee ownership trust, diversify or divest, re-finance or re-structure, we offer the expertise to help you achieve your aims. Our dedicated Corporate Finance team only work on a select number of projects providing the speed of response that is essential.

The team has experience across a wide range of industry sectors and sizes of business. We know the market and the people to help you complete the deal. Most importantly, we’re approachable, friendly and down to earth, so you won’t be swamped with jargon. We do not have a minimum or maximum deal size that we will advise on – we take each deal on its merits.
