As an independent boutique advisory firm, we are able to provide wholly objective and pragmatic advice on strategic options for clients ranging from corporates to professional investors to family businesses. Every transaction team is composed of professionals with experience in the relevant industry, as well as professionals with honed project management and analytical skills.

Clairfield has been helping businesses create successful outcomes since its establishment in 2004, boasting a proven track record in managing sell-side transactions, be they domestic or cross-border. Clairfield advises on divestures of non-core corporate activities and sales of businesses for corporate clients, private equity firms, and family businesses. Since every sale process is unique, we tailor our transaction strategies specifically to meet our client’s needs, from discreet private processes to public auctions. A strong network is essential for any strategic transaction. Clairfield works with financial sponsors and strategic buyers across the globe to make sure our clients are able to find the right match for their needs. We provide committed transaction support from senior partners who leverage their connections and expertise to achieve the optimal price for every client.
Clairfield provides advice on acquisition strategy and execution. On the buy-side, we coordinate organic and sustainable growth strategies to be implemented via acquisitions for corporate clients or portfolio companies of private equity clients, to enable companies to continue to thrive long after negotiations have ended. We begin the process by defining a clear acquisition strategy, calling on our international resources to create a tailored target list. With partners in every major economy, we have the capacity and connections to approach local targets and ascertain interest. Our specialized research analysts and the combined industry expertise of our partners bring unparalleled insight and market intelligence to even the most complicated cases.
