Where deal complexity and speed meet their match—our M&A consulting team is ready to make your investment thesis a reality.

M&A transactions take significant focus and resources. The potential rewards are high, but so are the risks. Before benefits can be realized, there are many critical decisions and challenges: deal strategy, diligence, integration planning and execution, and achieving optimal performance. That’s where we can help. Our M&A consulting services target the unique challenges you face every step of the way.

We embrace the challenge of ensuring your transaction is poised for success, tailoring the best solutions and resources to help you realize your goals.

On average, we support more than 400 transactions each year. This experience, combined with our multidisciplinary approach through industry, operational, and technology expertise, helps dealmakers plan for and manage the complexities of mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. With experience comes exposure to nearly all industries and types of deals, which means you’ll benefit from leading mergers & acquisitions best practices to help support your growth initiatives. When you partner with our M&A consultants, you can navigate complexities, and capitalize on opportunities—and quickly unlock real value.

What is M&A Consulting

We tackle the complexities across the transaction lifecycle with a focus on technology and operations—from strategy, analysis, and planning all the way to integration and optimization.

Understand your readiness to buy, integrate, or sell

We understand your resource, operational, and technology readiness, and evaluate the scalability of organizational assets to support a transaction and the ensuing integration or separation.

Look under the hood for you—before you buy

Despite the competitive landscape and increasingly shorter deal cycles, our M&A advisory services can mobilize fast to evaluate your target—in time to perform key assessments that can help avoid costly oversights and identify opportunities for value creation. From technology diligence to operations assessments to market and digital considerations, we bring both speed and expertise to infuse confidence into your deals.

Piece together the complex puzzle pieces in a merger

Nailing integration is key to retaining the best assets (customers, people, process, and technology), and capturing value. Our M&A consulting experts help companies accelerate their transition timeline, maximize synergy capture, and minimize risks associated with complex business technology integration.

Stand up new companies with precision

With distinct experience in supporting more than 60 divestitures, our dedicated, award-winning team of carveout experts are ready to help. We can guide you through separation planning, target operating model design, core system separation and standup, and program management through completion.

Our proven Carveout Readiness & Execution (CORE) approach provides interim leadership for key functions such as human resources, finance, cybersecurity, and technology beyond closing when many other service providers exit. It is designed to consolidate functional areas that typically comprise 60% to 80% of the one-time separation budget.

Create value for private equity portfolio companies

As a private equity operating partner, you’re tasked with creating as much value as possible for exit, at the lowest cost. Our decades of partnership with the world’s top private equity firms means our M&A advisory teams have seen hundreds of platforms bought, developed, and sold. The good news? Our deal teams turn seamlessly into post-close teams—and work with you to create new revenue streams, build and manage tech platforms, optimize operations, and more.
