Mergers and acquisitions are among the most common ways of growing a business. However, when you acquire a business you acquire people and existing benefit promises. Legislation is in place to protect the benefits of transferring employees. Ensuring these regulations are not breached requires robust due diligence, a full understanding of what the benefit market can offer and how it works.
We understand the benefits markets, needs, its shortcomings and above all, we understand our clients’ needs. By conducting the proper employee benefits due diligence work we can identify the key areas of risk and requirements for the transaction. Then when the transaction has been completed we can assist by implementing a well structured transition plan for both the business and all the employees impacted, so helping to deliver a better outcome for all.
