Our Strengths:

Specialized in European cross-border acquisitions and divestitures.

End-to-end solutions: Comprehensive support for corporate development transactions through active participation in each stage of the process. During the corporate strategy formulation by assessing feasibility and alternatives, at the origination by identifying suitable prospects to be approached, and during the execution phase by ensuring efficient completion, allowing clients to focus on running their businesses.

Excellent support for US and European multinationals: Providing market segmentation and/or target screening and, in many cases, originating privately-negotiated acquisition opportunities through industry-specific insights and our network of relationships as well as a tactful and cultural sensitive approach.

Expertise in succession issues and corporate spin-offs: For family owned businesses with succession issues and divisions of larger groups to be divested, our US and European coverage maximizes the geographical reach of sell side assignments and ensures that the most appropriate partners are contacted. We provide midsize businesses the technical, cultural and negotiation skills that are otherwise available only for larger transactions.
