Nyras is the only aviation specialist authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK to oversee transactions and provide advice on acquisitions, disposals and mergers. We often take on the lead transaction advisory role for our clients and have also acted as the industry adviser and conducted due diligence on behalf of investors.
Our transaction advisory assignments are led by Richard Davey and Iain May, who both have significant experience of transactions and are personally FCA authorised. They are supported by Mark Elliott, Nigel Addison Smith and Yen Sung - all of whom are FCA authorised and have advised on transaction and IPOs, developed vendor due diligence documents, and conducted negotiations on behalf of clients. The team is underpinned by our wider network of senior associates who provide analytical support and expertise in particular disciplines.
Clients often engage Nyras on transactions as a follow on from strategic or restructuring engagements to capitalise on our detailed knowledge of their situation to inform transactional decisions. We develop high level post transaction business plans, to ensure our clients have as much knowledge as possible of the implementation issues, and financial impact and risk involved with each transaction. We have been very successful in securing positive outcomes for our clients on transactions, while minimising risk and securing significant benefits.
