• Your future, personally delivered.


The level of service you require

We work with a very small number of clients to ensure that we concentrate our full resources and remain laser focussed on the outcome of every transaction.

Planning and implementing a company sale or acquisition is both an emotional and technical process. It can be intense, challenging and turbulent. This means you need to be confident that the partner you choose to support you through this process has a wealth of experience and can be relied upon to shoulder the burden, always putting your best interests first. The team at Leith M&A are friendly, straight talking and incredibly tenacious in our approach, giving balanced and knowledgeable advice along the way.

We look forward to working with you.
