In the HR M&A Transactions team we focus on advising and supporting clients through the complete deal life-cycle, providing a range of sell-side and buy-side HR/People related services to clients. We contribute to and validate the deal price pre-deal and the assist in the realisation of the deal synergies post-deal.
Our services range from complex HR due diligence, day one readiness, post-merger integration and post deal value enhancement such as organisation design, consultation planning and execution and culture change initiatives. We also support clients to plan and implement the HR/People elements for organisational restructuring programmes at both strategic and operational levels. The team works on engagements for Swiss, European & Global organisations and private equity houses across the deal and restructuring life-cycle.
These engagements are often complex and fast-paced due to the nature of the deal timelines in ensuring adherence to statutory and anti-trust regulations.
