Acquira Professional Services has been active in the field of mergers & acquisitions for law firms since 2004. With the founder’s background as a lawyer in the legal sector, it made sense to move into M&A for law firms and the growing and exciting market for legal tech companies.
We mainly focus on working with UK corporate and commercial law firms in what is loosely called the “independent legal sector”, usually below £25 million but we are also regularly retained by a number of top 100 law firms. We also work with buyers who are strategic and experienced at acquisitions and who have a clear external growth strategy.
Of growing importance to us has been helping new and established legal tech companies find suitable partners both in the US and Europe.
Our approach, whether working for a buyer or seller, is ensuring that the search and sale processes are kept simple and transparent with the principal objective of maximizing value.
WORKING WITH YOU
We work exclusively with senior members of the law firm or business management team and who have a proven track records of success in their area of the legal sector.
We enjoy working with law firm partners, CEOs of parent group companies and subsidiaries of a larger organisations, legal entrepreneurs, and owners of law firm SME’s.
We know that growth strategies bring their own challenges but a collaborative approach by aligning your needs and our search profile, together with our unique insight of the legal services and legal tech industry can make all the difference.
We believe that fundamental to understanding client, is understanding their firms’ unique culture. This is more important with law firms as non-lawyers often misunderstand how law firms work. The cultural chemistry has to work between the parties.
