Gerard Nichol Director London +44 (0)20 7728 2980

I am a director in our operational deal services team and have been at the firm for over 10 years. I advise and provide clients with hands-on, operationally-focused support on transactions. This is usually in relation to complex integrations (including synergy assessments) and carve-outs for both buyers and sellers.

I’m passionate about what we do and really enjoy helping our clients to maximise and deliver the value from transactions, working with them pre and post-deal to assess, plan and deliver complex changes to their businesses and those which they’re planning to buy. I've been fortunate to experience working with some excellent management teams for corporate and private equity clients internationally across industries which include software, healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and professional services.

The nature of our work is highly practical and combines providing both financial and operational insight in situations which range from helping businesses to rapidly scale (including through multiple simultaneous bolt-on acquisitions and rapid integration) to implementing rapid operational restructuring or disposals for those in financial distress.

In my spare time I can usually be found in the kitchen cooking (with varying degrees of success), running around a park in South London or travelling, usually in search of interesting food.
