Accelerated M&A

Accelerated M&A provides a key lifeline to a huge number of companies. Freeths has the experience, resources and expertise to deliver clear, fast and commercial advice on accelerated M&A transactions whether you are a buyer, seller, investor, lender, director or other stakeholder. We have advised on numerous accelerated M&A transactions typically valued between £1million to £50million.

Accelerated M&A is the sale of a business in a very short timescale to achieve an exit in challenging circumstances and very often as a result of cash-flow issues. This is distinct from distressed M&A e.g. where an insolvency process is involved.

Our highly skilled team of lawyers have a market leading reputation for acting with speed and sensitivity to achieve our clients’ objectives. Our key focus is to deliver value-added solutions and straightforward advice in the fragile and time critical context of an accelerated M&A transaction.

We act for companies, strategic investors, directors and boards, lenders, funders and individuals in all aspects of financially and commercially challenging deals. As a top 50, full service, business law firm with 13 offices nationally, 220 partners and directors and over 800 members of staff, Freeths has the resources to manage all key stakeholders in an accelerated process with an efficient and commercial approach.

Our focus is to understand how you want us to work and what your aims and objectives are so that we can deliver a service that is responsive, tailored to your needs and adds real value at a critical time.
