The UK economy has been services led for decades. Cooper Parry advises clients on M&A and financings across the Business Services sector, including professional services firms (legal, compliance, insurance broking) business process outsourcing (such as energy services), FM including waste management and finally human capital management.
The outsourcing of non-core business functions has become a key strategy for many companies, whilst nearly all of our deals in services involve some degree of technology enablement. Another key trend we are seeing driving deal activity and consolidation is the impact of regulatory changes in many services sectors.
Together with our Business Services Group across Europe and the US, we recognise the challenges of service delivery, client demands and market dynamics in this sector. We also understand how these factors drive value and attract investors. Interest in this area, particularly from private equity investors, continues to grow. We’d welcome the opportunity to help you evaluate your options.
