Private Equity and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Services


AB Phillips Private Equity and M&A Services practice works with private equity firms, corporations, lenders, and investors to provide solutions which will manage M&A risks in a highly structured and efficient manner. Our solutions are designed to minimise and transfer transactional risks, providing a platform for rapid completion and sign-off with minimal exposure.

We recognise each transaction has its own lifecycle, and so we work with you before, during and after each transaction. The complexity of a merger or acquisition, and the inevitable lack of definition especially in the early stages, creates substantial inherent risks. Mitigating these risks requires skilled advisers, who can examine all aspects of the transaction, identify the risks and opportunities in an organised and efficient manner and then build a comprehensive solution considering opportunities and obstacles. Typically, the information we gather, and the attention we focus on various components of the ‘deal’ adds significantly to your understanding of the target entity.

Once the transaction is complete, our group purchasing power allows us to continue to provide lower insurance costs over the life of the investment.
