Consolidation and roll-ups

test image test image

Consolidation and roll up projects are full of complexity. We’ll help you manage the risks and maximise the rewards.

If executed correctly, consolidation and roll up projects can generate value, but there is a lot to consider to ensure a successful strategy.

Our consolidation and roll ups team will guide you through the challenges and steer you away from the pitfalls from the start to the finish of a consolidation or roll up strategy.

With significant experience in such transactions and an in-depth understanding of the issues which can (and do!) arise, we are perfectly placed to accurately scope, efficiently manage, and successfully transact these deals. Our experience includes advising on roll up programmes in the health and aged care and education sectors.

Project management is core to any roll up or consolidation, and our team works seamlessly both within our firm and with the multitude of other advisers and stakeholders to provide the best advice and results for our clients.

Our cross-functional team covers all aspects of a roll up project including:

  • Tax, structuring and trusts 
  • Banking and finance
  • Insolvency 
  • Employment
  • Leasing and property 
  • Privacy.
