Survey your empire.
Imagine your brand stretching as far as the eye can see.
Impressive? Now you just have to work out how to do it……
Which is where we come in.
At VG Charles & Co we have an exceptional reputation for brokering mergers/acquisitions on behalf of ambitious firms keen to further their commercial interests by expanding or opening in a new location. Whilst some firms seek to do this by bringing on board a couple of local partners or relocating existing staff to build a team, many seek a ‘ready-made’ and collegiate option as opposed to starting off with a completely greenfield site.
And with more than 70 firms around the UK Top 100 having merged in the last 5 years, you run the risk of being left behind by your competition if you don’t.
Working with these organisations to identify strategic approaches, we can advise on which firms already in the area might already share your outlook and ethos, which are strong in your own key areas of practice, and hence which would potentially represent a good match. We can also manage the whole process, from making the initial contact to ascertain whether there is interest right through to DD stage.
Even more so than making a key lateral hire, getting it wrong when merging can be a costly mistake to make, with real possibilities of losing key staff and clients, particularly if the firm you are looking at doesn’t buy into your own unique philosophy and ethos.
Which is why you need to talk to an expert in this field.
Really, you should speak to us. It’s what we do.
