James Gosling


“M&A is more than the numbers or a deal structure, it is about people, clients or customers, staff and culture. Ensuring the successful ‘passing of the baton’ from one ownership to the next.”

James has over 15 years of M&A experience, including 8 years in the Banking sector with Coutts. During this time, James has worked on various transactions globally from complex lending facilities, IP acquisitions, investment fundraising, Private Equity to trade sales and acquisitions, covering various sectors including professional services, music and entertainment, sport, and commercial property.

He has consulted and assisted many HNW individuals, business owners and other commercial businesses, building close long-lasting relationships with all parties involved in transactions, not simply the shareholders themselves. This has resulted in an unrivalled network of Partners of accountancy practices, Partners of law firms, business insurers, lenders, and wealth managers to name a few.

Outside of business, James enjoys keeping fit through running, boxing, table tennis and taking part in various physical challenges (endurance hikes, cycle rides etc). He also enjoys going to live music shows, and loves sipping a lovely drop of single malt whisky.
