Mergers & Acquisitions

We help clients consider their Mergers & Acquisition options and make a considered plan to grow, or divest, ensuring cultural fit and financial success.

Why it’s important to buy the right practice, the right way

We’ve unwound plenty of poorly executed M&A strategies, we find it’s always best to spend the time and resources upfront to reduce the risk of a poor outcome.

Situations where buying a practice can benefit

With the increasing regulatory costs, scale is a major contributor to financial success in these businesses. Small practices aren’t viable on their own anymore, even more so if you’re nearing retirement stage. Merging your practice with a likeminded organisation means spending time on what you love – seeing clients, and less time on compliance red tape. Similarly, if you’re building your business, acquiring is a great way to body build and profitability.
