Headland is a London based agency specialising in financial and corporate reputation, public affairs and campaigning.

Headland has grown substantially in recent years building an impressive client base full of large multi-national companies. 

The minority investment by private equity firm LDC will support Headland's ambitious growth strategy to deepen its consultancy capabilities and fulfil its objective to advise a broader range of clients on complex communication matters.

BDO supported LDC in their investment by providing financial and tax due diligence services as well as SPA support.

“The transaction services team here at BDO enjoyed working with David, Lewis and Sophie on LDC’s investment in Headland.  This continues our long and enjoyable relationship with LDC.  We wish Dan and Chris at Headland all the best as they look to push the business forward in partnership with LDC.   We certainly can relate to a business in the professional services space that is challenges the historical norms and recognising that it’s not about the way it has been done, but the way it needs to be done for the customer.”
