We understand that you are about to embark on a transaction process which will undoubtedly be one of the most significant and demanding periods of your business career to date. Based upon our significant experience of acting for clients undertaking similar transaction processes, we strongly recommend you consider putting plans in place now as to how you will manage and protect the realisation of your investment when it arrives, rather than doing so after the event.

Their experience and approach will afford you the luxury of time to allow you to consider how best to manage your affairs and assets after the transaction closes.
