About the Team 

We are M&A Advisors – we provide tailored M&A advice to ensure our clients pursue and successfully complete the transactions that are right for them.
Our M&A Advisory team works directly with shareholders, founders and C-suite executives throughout the entire M&A lifecycle to deliver advice on every aspect of a transaction, from initial valuation guidance, through financial and strategic analysis, to finding and negotiating with the right counterparties.

We are a group of high-calibre professionals led by a diverse leadership team who are supportive, collaborative, and innovative. We execute some of New Zealand’s most interesting transactions across entrepreneur-backed and family-owned businesses, private equity, and corporate New Zealand.
