Livingstone has established a strong reputation for its cross-border transacting skills. Our track record reflects the substantial investment we have made in our international research capability since 1976 and our active pursuit of sector specialisations since 1994.
The creation of a single, integrated Livingstone team across offices in the UK, Germany, Spain, the United States and China, has significantly enhanced our service offering, enabling us to deliver one team, one methodology and the single-minded pursuit of results for our clients. Even prior to our three-way merger, the Livingstone teams successfully completed 100 trans-Atlantic transactions worth several £billions. Recent transactions have involved parties from as far afield as Australia, China, Japan, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Israel, Italy, Malaysia and Sweden.
North America remains the most important source of strategic purchasers - and increasingly private equity - for European vendor clients, while Livingstone’s corporate clients are constantly reviewing their business portfolios on both sides of the Atlantic, creating a regular flow of divestment and bolt-on acquisition opportunities.
Livingstone’s teams give clients immediate access to acquisition targets, potential purchasers, strategic partners and financial investors across Europe, the US and China, and add an unique dimension to the services which we offer on mid-market transactions.
