How Our Corporate Finance Professionals Can Help

Our advice takes many forms: from analyzing strategic options, to assessing value, structuring the deal, designing mechanisms for presenting the deal to the marketplace, managing the transaction process, and negotiating and securing favourable terms for a successful closing. We also furnish fairness opinions and other opinions for directors, investors, and regulators.

Our professionals’ advice is supported by:

 

  • A true understanding of the issues and challenges faced by our clients
  • Global execution capability
  • Connectivity with the financial markets

Together, our firm’s Corporate Finance professionals have advised on or arranged billions of dollars of privately-arranged M&A transactions, sensitive equity and debt transactions, and other major transactions.

We do not participate in underwriting or lending activities. Our Corporate Finance professionals remain independent as to which type of transaction or financing approach you choose to meet your goals. We endeavour to ensure that our advice to you is free from conflict. We will always seek to develop a long-term relationship with you to help meet your needs beyond the immediate transaction.
