Flint’s Markets and Investor Advisory practice works with deployers of capital in the UK and Europe.
Our team brings together deep experience from the most senior levels in the public and private sectors.
We help our clients deploy capital effectively across major projects and transactions wherever there are political, public policy, regulatory, national security or competition risks. Effective management of these risks is critical to securing commercial success and creating value.
Our team brings together deep experience from the most senior levels in the public and private sectors. We have worked in 10 Downing St, HM Treasury, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Competition and Markets Authority, Ofgem, Ofcom and the European Commission as well as in business, leading investment banks, economic and strategy consultancies and law firms.
Our objective is to drive successful outcomes for investors and companies:
Mergers and acquisitions
We work at the heart of major transactions, developing and evidencing economic arguments, advising on detailed aspects of merger control processes, how to manage the risks of political and national security interventions and the design of remedies. We work seamlessly alongside legal, financial and other advisers to give every transaction the best possible chance of speedy clearance.
We work with leading private equity firms, as well as VC firms, hedge funds, REITs and other alternative investors across the full investment lifecycle. This includes due diligence, transaction clearance, post-acquisition strategy and firm-wide strategic issues.
Infrastructure and Energy
We advise investors and businesses who have an interest in the UK and European infrastructure markets, helping them navigate the complex world of politics and regulation to maximise value from existing assets and capitalise on new commercial opportunities.
Drawing on deep knowledge of the financial services sector, we help our clients anticipate, understand and respond to regulatory and policy developments at country level and across Europe.
Origination and Procurement
We work with clients facing opportunities in relation to major government or regulator decisions on the award of public sector funding, contracts or franchises. This includes influencing the shape of ongoing COVID-19 government support and the award and management of major public sector franchises and contracts.
National Security and Investment
We advise a wide range of clients on sensitive investments where there may be national security implications.
