nStratagem’s Mergers and Acquisition Service

Mergers Acquisitions

Merger’s & acquisitions are complex projects with many independent parts that need to be synchronized to deliver stakeholder value and an efficient “joining-up” of all merging components to ensure on-going value.  Research consistently shows that M&A’s often fail due to non-technical factors rather than finance and legal factors.

When so much is riding on such a critical project you need the experience and expertise to deliver it right the first time. You need the right Strategy, the right Planning, the right Execution at the right Time and the right Team.

Our world-class people, practical tools, proven experience and know-how can help you get it right, the first time.

A key member of our world-class M&A team, for example, is Dr. Tim Galpin, Tim is a world-renowned expert in M&A and Post Merger Acquisitions and literally wrote the best-selling book on this subject (The Complete Guide To Mergers and Acquisitions). He is also an expert in Strategy and Innovation and Senior Lecturer at SaÏd Business School, University of Oxford. A sample of our M&A team members is outlined below and you can see additional profiles of our M&A faculty in our People section.
