We help you reduce the risk and costs associated with both the environmental and the health-and-safety elements of transactions, thereby maximising your shareholders’ returns.

International Multi-Country M&A Integration

International Multi-Country M&A Integration

When acquiring a company outside its normal operational sphere, companies often struggle to understand the regulatory environment. Our teams have worked in multiple geographies and, as a result, we have developed an understanding of many other countries’ EH&S requirements. We’ve also developed strategic alliances with other smaller M&A consultants (in a number of countries, including China and Mexico), enabling us to manage due diligence and follow requirements effectively.

EH&S Integration

EH&S Integration

Fast and effective integration is the key to ensuring a successful and profitable acquisition. Aligning environmental management systems, compliance requirements and health-and-safety programs between newly merged companies, while ensuring business operations are not interrupted, is critical. Our team of experts works to renew and update key permits, revise and update financial accruals and leverage key expenditures within the first year to leverage the purchase price accounting positions.
