Acquisition and Development

Working sensitively and with great care Noel at Start Murphy identified, targeted and brokered the initial contact with a prospective acquisition. Noel continued to work as an essential part of the team through the entire negotiation process to merger/acquisition. We now intend to use Start Murphy to work within the acquired business to advise this Board on the best way to maximise the performance of the organisation, so that investments are protected and returns secured

Acquisition and Development of Client Premises in the ‘Square Mile’ of London

A key client had very reluctantly made a decision to move one of their premier offices in the heart of the city of London, as the overhead costs were exceeding the sustainable income levels the office was currently able to generate. This was due to the worldwide economic state of affairs and nervousness in clients to make longer-term investment decisions.

We negotiated with the client’s Landlord for an early release on the current lease commitment whilst sourcing new, larger and more attractive premises for our client at a considerably reduced cost just around the corner from the existing premises.

Our expert staff were able to explain from our external, professional and impartial perspective the importance of keeping the business located in the city with access to clients because of the profile this gave the business.

Our full project management service offering included:

  • The identification of the premises.
  • Negotiation on the lease arrangements with the commercial estate agents/landlord.
  • All legal intervention and discussions with solicitors for the client.
  • Authorisation of appropriate searches on the premises.
  • Full development of space planning and design for the new premises to accommodate staff and equipment.
  • Marketing, launch and theme of new premises for maximum impact for client and their customers.
  • Identification and purchase of premises, equipment and furniture.
  • Engagement of removal and storage providers.

The project was turned around from start to finish in just three months for our client with the opportunity for a major launch to customers in the spring.
