Special situations M&A

Clear and effective advice in every scenario

Some situations simply can’t be predicted, but still require a swift response grounded in technical knowledge and experience. The current situation may not have been expected, but the team at FRP has likely dealt with it many times before.

We can manage the process of buying or selling a business in the most complex and fluid of circumstances. We are specialists at working on accelerated timelines while addressing the often competing demands of multiple stakeholders. Exceptional times call for exceptional responses, and our flexible approach means we can work quickly and effectively.

Our team will provide clear, actionable and responsive advice at every step of the special situations M&A process. We position the business for sale, create marketing materials, identify buyers, coordinate the due diligence process and help with negotiations, typically operating under tight timelines. We offer a safe pair of hands at every stage.

What sets FRP apart though, is the breadth of expertise and insight across our firm. If your situation requires, we can draw on our corporate finance, debt advisory and restructuring advisory teams to boost our capabilities and handpick the right team to work towards your goals.

We can respond quickly to manage complex and changing situations. You’re in safe hands with us. Matthew Flower Corporate Finance
