We often get asked why it makes sense to hire an M&A advisor to assist with the completion of a transaction. There are many reasons, and in this article we outline just a few of them.


The reality is, completing an M&A deal is time consuming. From the time spent preparing for the market, through to contacting and liaising with prospective buyers or sellers, through to negotiating offers, preparing documents for due diligence, managing due diligence and managing the legal process, it’s not uncommon for there to be over 50 hours of work per week for months on end in order to complete a successful transaction. Often, this is time that the management team in a company should better direct to the day-to-day operation of the company, whilst leaving the intricacies of the M&A deal to an experienced advisor.

Quick, Accurate, Impartial Advice

M&A advisors are experienced in making high value and risk strategic decisions on a day to day basis. They have the experience to know what may go wrong if certain decisions are made and can use this experience to navigate tricky decisions. Further, M&A advisors are working for you, and will ensure that all advice leads to the best possible commercial outcome for you after balancing all financial, operational and legal risks that may be in existence for a given decision.

Non-Emotive Decision Making

Because we’ve done it before, we don’t get caught up in the emotions of making a decision, even in the heat of important negotiations for a deal. M&A advisors are experts at looking at matters from a practical, commercial perspective and making decisions in this light. This makes for better transaction outcomes and cleaner transaction processes.
