London-headquartered advisory firm Jamieson Corporate Finance has opened its first international office in Maddison Avenue, New York, it said in a statement.
Jamieson has made the move after advising parties on a number of recent transatlantic deals, including the management team of the Gates Corporation, based in Colorado, on its $4.5 billion sale to private equity firm The Blackstone Group.
John Greenland, a partner at the firm, will head the new office. As US managing partner, Greenland will be responsible for originating and executing management advisory and M&A transactions for Jamieson’s US and international clients.
Greenland said in a statement: “The market for management advice has been long established in the UK and rest of Europe. However, the US market is less familiar with specialist management advisory services and the significant benefits that these deliver to all parties during major transactions.”
The company has also advised on buyouts and restructurings and completed more than 100 deals with a combined value in excess of £30 billion (€37.7 billion; $51.3 billion).
