Management Advisory

Personal approach

Management teams are the most important asset in any business. It is vitally important that the needs, risk and reward for the management team are balanced with the needs, risk and reward of the private equity or other fund owning the business.

Our team has completed over 650 private equity transactions and our insight into the structuring of transactions is unrivalled. We work with management teams to ensure that the incentive arrangements are appropriate.

Our advisory team works on primary buyouts, secondary buyouts, financial restructurings and reorganising existing management incentive plans.

  • Buyouts - whether your company is owned by a corporate, private equity or a private individual, we help you to analyse the potential investors and negotiate the commercial arrangements to ensure your aspirations are met
  • Financial restructuring - we help you review the proposed new structure and ensure that management team are appropriately incentivized
  • Resetting management incentive plans - not every deal goes according to plan as trading environments change and new finance is injected. Shareholders need to ensure that management remain incentivized and committed to the business. We help management teams to renegotiate new incentive arrangements appropriate to the new circumstances

Our thorough understanding of private equity transactions and our appreciation of the emotional rollercoaster that transactions can be for management teams ensures we provide you with high-quality advice, tactical insights and negotiation assistance.
