The service sector is a key contributor to the UK economy both in terms of GDP and provision of employment. It is a broad sector covering a range of diverse knowledge-intensive industries providing specialised support to businesses including Business Process Outsourcing, Facilities Management, Recruitment and Human Resources, Consultancy, Professional Services, Advertising and Market Research, and Architectural and Engineering services.
As a consequence of the often highly skilled and knowledge-intensive nature of many of the services offerings, they are highly geographically mobile and therefore the UK is a key exporter of Business Services around the globe. As such, many M&A transactions within this sector will have an international element.
We leverage our expertise, experience and global reach to create lasting value. Our mission is to provide exceptional service to our clients in the M&A arena.
