Mergers, Acquisitions and Executive Search for Legal, Accountancy and IFA Businesses

Helping businesses and people realise their aims through originating, facilitating and brokering deals for lateral hires, mergers and acquisitions.

Helping Businesses Grow

Ortus Group has worked with a range of professional service firms from sole practitioner to ‘Big 4’ and ‘Magic Circle’ in identifying and securing for their businesses, rainmakers, teams, leaders and professionals with rare skill sets. We have also enabled many clients to enter new towns and cities as well as bolster existing offices through applying a professional executive search methodology to the sensitive process of mergers and acquisitions.  Our completed projects have brought  tens of millions of pounds worth of business to our clients.

Helping People Grow

We work with partners to originate new opportunities to develop their careers and client bases in new firms. Utilising our nationwide contacts, depth of understanding of your practice area and our work methodology, the experienced team at Ortus Group will help you develop your business proposition and guide you through the process of transition into a new environment. We are much more interested in identifying the best place for you and your clients, not just talking to those who happen to be looking at any given moment.

Helping People Retire

Ortus Group has acted on behalf of several independent partnerships to facilitate an orderly exit plan for owners who wish to work toward an orderly retirement, realise the value in their business and tidy up in such a way as to have no ongoing liabilities.  Our directors will work with you to understand the business and take it to market in such a way as we find the best successor; not just the one you happen to know might be looking locally. This ensures best value is achieved for you, your remaining staff are more secure in their ongoing employment and the loyalty of your clients is more likely to remain.
