Please describe what your business does…
Leith Mergers & Acquisitions Limited is an award winning M & A advisory firm who offer professional advice to company owners across the South of England. Leith work with clients across the corporate sector who are considering either selling their company or growing their portfolio through targeted acquisition. We typically work on business sales of up to £40 million.
What makes your business special?
At Leith we believe we offer a truly personal and thorough service to our clients, only working with a small number of company owners at any time which allows us to offer a uniquely client focused and flexible approach. We offer all the resources you would expect from a corporate advisory firm but we deliver our service personally. Leith was founded with the aim of providing a hands-on, results driven service and we remain passionate about protecting this business model because we know that this level of focus alone consistently achieves results.
David Nelson, Leith’s Managing Director, works alongside each of our clients throughout the process, every step of the way. David handles all negotiations, chairs client meetings and liaises between all professionals on the buy side and sell side from engagement to completion offering expertise with common sense and in plain English. We are proud to have recognised as a leader in our field winning a number of awards for the quality of the service we provide.
How long have you been in Dorking?
As a family David and founding partner Sophie Nelson relocated to Dorking from living in London in 2011 driven by the desire to base the company in a location central to the hub of the South-East whilst also being conducive to raising a young family.
Why is Dorking a good place to do business?
It was important for Leith to be based in a location with excellent travel links to London and the Home Counties, with the majority of the Company’s clients being based in the South-East of England. Many prospective buyers travel from around the world to meet with our clients and it is therefore important for our location to be near London Heathrow and London Gatwick airports. Dorking is an attractive and thriving location from which to work and is also home to an important network of professional partners with whom Leith work on a regular basis.
