Mergers and Acquisitions

On a discreet basis, we can make introductions that could expedite your business ambitions - and can also recommend experienced M&A consultants who can guide parties through a purchase or sale process, ensuring that vendors benefit from first-hand experience of the acquisition process in this sector.

If you are an investor looking to acquire a business in the sector, we can advise you on potential opportunities.


If you wish to expand into new business areas or geographic locations, we can recommend consultancy firms or freelance individual consultants (worldwide), whose insight and experience could be a crucial advantage to your business strategy.

Clare Gossage from The PIE started consulting for Clubclass London in November 2015 to help us with our marketing approaches. Throughout the initial consultation, Clare was incredibly thorough and professional. She took the time to get to know the whole operation and the key staff involved. Her report was extremely comprehensive and very useful to help Clubclass London start to move in the right direction. Clare’s consultancy was not only limited to the report, she has continued to support Clubclass London and we regularly meet to discuss our progress and to talk through any challenges we are facing. I would highly recommend both Clare and The PIE for any kind of consultancy, they are fantastic professionals who provide sound advice for your education institution.
