What our clients have to say…

We are extremely proud to have acquired Workpays and the Gerald Edelman Transaction team played a pivotal role not only in ensuring that this deal went through but that it went through smoothly. Their expert strategic advice was key in ensuring all investors and lenders were satisfied with all aspects of the deal – the accounts, the share purchase agreement, and the diligence. At all stages of the transaction, I was fortunate to be able to rely on their experience and knowledge to negotiate the transaction and structure the deal in a way that worked for everyone. It goes without saying that I recommend the team at Gerald Edelman to anyone who needs M&A and business advisory services and I’m looking forward to working with them again soon.

Managing Partner, Coniston Peak

What our clients have to say…

The team at Gerald Edelman supported us throughout the transaction, liaising efficiently with both our internal team and our legal representatives. Their report was provided in a timely manner and covered all key aspects. From the start to the end of the acquisition process we felt confident that we were receiving the expert knowledge and support that we needed to support our decision-making. Excellent service all round, and we would highly recommend Gerald Edelman accountancy and would engage their services again for any future acquisitions.
