I negotiate hard and bring experience, commitment and calmness under pressure

Tom advises owner-managed businesses and management teams on company sales, private equity and buyouts. He has 25 years’ experience and has completed over 100 deals across numerous sectors.

Why

It’s exciting to work with business owners and management teams as they seek to grow, acquire and sell businesses, and rewarding to play some part in their success and help them achieve their objectives. I enjoy seeing at first hand the emotion and commitment that goes into running a successful businesses and the joy and relief when a transaction completes.

What

Advises owner managed businesses and management teams on company sales, private equity and buyouts. Over the last 25 years I have completed over 100 deals across numerous sectors with a particular focus on succession and exit planning.

How

I ensure I understand my clients’ personal objectives and rationale for a deal, and work closely with them to deliver the best result – be it maximising value on a sale or securing the best deal from funders. I become part of their team, working closely with them and their other advisers, through what can be an emotional roller coaster. I negotiate hard on the points that really matter, and bring experience, commitment and calmness under pressure that is often deeply reassuring. And we always celebrate in style when a deal completes.
