Amar Patel, Director

I lead our national Special Situations M&A practice, part of BDO’s wider advisory offering. I advise in special situations, often delivering solutions in an accelerated timetable where a full M&A process may not be possible and utilising insolvency as a delivery mechanism if required. 

I work in an approachable and efficient manner with a wide variety of clients (both sellers and buyers) and advise a variety of stakeholders (corporates, lenders and directors) in stressed and distressed situations, providing strategic insight and expertise on suitable solutions. I have in depth knowledge and understanding of the market dynamics in a number of key sectors including Leisure, Retail, Travel and Technology. Notable UK M&A assignments include: Four Seasons Health Care Group, the Deltic Group & Dave Whelan Sports, Europcar Mobility Group, all of which were complex situations requiring careful stakeholder management and strategic planning to deliver successful outcomes.
