Quercus Corporate Finance has announced the arrival of Jim Clark as an Associate Partner to support ongoing growth in demand for its services. Jim is the firm’s third senior appointment in two months, with Tully Cornick having previously joined as an Associate Partner and Michael Mortimor having been promoted to partner.

Jim is an experienced dealmaker who brings a wealth of M&A and advisory experience having worked in Corporate Finance for 25 years. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant with EY and subsequently worked for KPMG in their Transaction Services team before specialising in Lead Advisory. Jim has a track record of success supporting entrepreneurs, management teams, private equity houses and corporates.

Speaking about his new role, Jim said:

“Quercus is a byword for quality and excellence in M&A and I am delighted to be joining a team with such a strong track record of delivery.  I’m in no doubt that 2023 will be a busy year despite the short-term inflationary headwinds. Speaking to my clients it is clear that there is capital and appetite in large supply, particularly among private equity firms and I expect buyers will continue to pay a premium for quality businesses.”

Andrew Clegg, Quercus Partner, added:

“Jim’s appointment is the next step in our strategy to build a world-class advisory firm. He has a track record of success and is exceedingly well connected. Jim’s experience will be invaluable in the year ahead as our clients seek to meet the demands of today’s economic climate, whether that be with their growth plans, accessing new sources of funding or planning for exit.”
