Business and Professional Services

Our Business and Professional Services team provides corporates, private equity houses and other clients with a full suite of M&A services including acquisitions, divestments, buy-outs and capital raisings, advising on a range of cross-border transactions.

Byron Griffin is the UK Business and Professional Services leader and is responsible for co-ordinating our efforts in the industry for Deloitte.

Our expertise extends across the full range of sub-industries including:

  • BPO and administration services
  • Facilities management
  • Human capital services
  • Transport and logistics
  • Professional services

We have identified a targeted group of industries within the wider Business and Professional Services industry which we believe have certain characteristics which will drive heightened M&A over the next few years and in which we have significant expertise and credentials. These niche sub-sectors are:

  • Trust and fund administration
  • Finance, administration and customer contact BPO
  • Legal services
  • Energy management services
  • Compliance and regulatory consulting services
  • Education and training
  • Specialist distribution

Over the last three years, we have advised on over 20 successful disposal transactions, a significant share being to UK and international trade buyers. In addition, we have acted for a number of private equity fund purchasers and vendors.
