The sector is continuously growing and covers a huge number of areas including:
- Human Capital
- Real Estate
- Professional services
- Training & Education
The M&A activity of the Business and Professional Services sector has been flourishing in the past years with a continuous interest from institutional investors as well as larger groups wanting to diversify and strengthen their market position.
Our corporate finance team has recently advised on significant deals in the Business and Professional Services sector in the Thames Valley and the South of England and benefits from an in-depth knowledge of the sector.
As businesses increasingly recognise the value of their staff as a key resource, the human capital industry has observed a significant growth and we have advised on many MBOs, disposals and acquisitions for businesses such as recruitment firms, training providers and human resources technology providers.
The UK consultancy market has consistently grown to become the second largest consulting market in Europe. We have recently advised several niche consultancy firms on disposals and MBOs.
Despite a slowdown of the property market in the UK post-Brexit vote, the real estate sector remains strong especially in the South of England. We have advised on an increasing number of acquisitions and MBOs in the real estate sector in recent years.
Despite post-Brexit vote effect, the professional services sector is experiencing a strong growth in the UK and we have recently advised both financial services and law firms on a number of fundraisings and acquisitions.
The training and education sector has benefited from the development of new online technologies and many niche training businesses have developed new methodologies to effectively develop people. We have recently advised a number of specific training companies on fundraisings, disposals and acquisitions.
What our clients say
We are delighted with the merger with Calvert. They are first rate lawyers who compliment the service Pitmans already offers. We were impressed by the help given by HMT in advising us with care, thoroughness, sensitivity and efficiency.
I would like to thank HMT for their invaluable advice on the sale of Vacancy Management Company to One to One Recruitment, especially for their expertise in finding the right home for my excellent team. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
