Philip Grindley Partner Manchester +44 (0)161 953 6452

Based in Manchester, I head up our north-west transaction advisory services team, specialising in financial due diligence and deal advisory work. I advise corporate and private equity clients on deals across a range of sectors with a focus on media, health, technology and business services.

I've more than 15 years' experience of buy- and sell-side due diligence and deal advisory work on cross-border transactions throughout Europe and in the USA, and spent several years in Frankfurt, Germany.

Prior to moving to Germany, I held CFO positions at TV production companies Talkback Productions and Carnival Films, providing me with valuable and unique insights into the media sector.

I’m known for my hands-on, collaborative approach to diligence and advisory assignments, and enjoy working closely with clients and other advisers to ensure that maximum value is delivered from each engagement.

Outside of work I'm a keen endurance athlete and compete in Ironman triathlons. I also have two teenage daughters, which has helped me to develop my negotiation and conflict resolution skills.
