Corporate Advisory

From complex restructuring and M&A support, to board-level consultancy and support for international companies expanding in the UK, we have extensive expertise in the high level financial issues that matter to large and growing businesses.

Authoritative financial guidance for high growth corporates

We support a substantial portfolio of entrepreneurial companies, UK-subsidiaries and national and international groups, many of which are complex organisations with global interests, requiring expert technical, tax advisory and strategic board-level support.

Typically we work as part of clients’ executive teams, alongside directors and company founders, or work closely with their in-house financial team, advising them across all financial aspects of their businesses and supporting them with both day-to-day and strategic high level issues and planning.

We work to suit each client’s unique structure, culture and particular priorities, attending board meetings, and other key stakeholder meetings, acting as a sounding board for high level decision making and take a leading role, where needed. Outside meetings, we remain proactively involved with clients’ business affairs, always considering the challenges they are facing and the potential opportunities ahead.

Supporting corporate teams from the ground up

Sharing valuable insights into high growth businesses

As a division, we offer a fully integrated corporate compliance and advisory service, from company secretarial services, bookkeeping, VAT and tax compliance, cash flow management and forecasting, to overseeing strategic planning, auditing, UK and international corporate tax affairs and corporate finance support. Our work is incredibly varied, which allows us to consider all financial and operational aspects of our clients’ businesses from the ground up.

This comprehensive approach ensures our clients are in the best position possible, whilst freeing up their time to focus on other areas. Whether it’s managing a specific issue on their behalf, overseeing compliance work, or identifying performance improvements through practical auditing, the pragmatism, problem-solving, industry knowledge and technical excellence we bring is crucial.

Our wide ranging corporate expertise includes being lead advisors to the first restaurant group floated on the London Stock Exchange and international groups entering the UK market, alongside multiple M&A deals, involving multi-million pound refinancing and private equity transactions, high level due diligence work, forensic accounting and fraud investigation assignments.

Over the years, we’ve gained unique insights into growing businesses across music and entertainment, luxury retail, premium hospitality, real estate and construction, along with a variety of other sectors, which is hugely valuable to our clients. Alongside this, we have extensive experience of helping clients to drive financial performance and business improvements, including strengthening their internal accounting and financial reporting processes.

As a team, we value the confidence our clients place in us, and the information shared. We invest in these relationships for a long time to build that kind of trust. We’ve had a number of clients for many years, and watched them grow and succeed in this time, which is incredibly rewarding.
