Business acquisition & sale specialists

Founded in 2008, Metzger Business Search is a specialist mergers and acquisition consultancy. We work with clients looking to grow their business through strategic acquisition of target companies. We also support clients wishing to sell their business with pre-sale advice and a fully managed, highly discreet sale process.


Seasoned & well-connected with significant M&A track record

Our team has successfully completed over 150 M&A deals involving UK companies selling and being acquired by UK trade, private equity and international buyers.

We specialise in the B2B Services, Industrial and Technology markets and have experience across sectors including renewables, business services, facilities management, property maintenance, construction, contract cleaning, security, fire, health & safety, compliance, energy, environmental, outsourcing, franchising, industrial and technology. For more information, visit our Case Studies page.



We believe fundamentally in doing our homework. All our assignments are research-led. When acting for a buyer we carry out a thorough review of potential target companies which are then short-listed together with our client before any approaches are made.

When acting for shareholders wishing to sell their company, we research and identify potential buyers both in the UK and overseas which are then short-listed in collaboration with our client before any anonymised information is released.

We do not adopt a mass-market approach and will never mail shot company directors.


Discretion & confidentiality

Discretion is paramount and is part of our modus operandi. We will keep the confidentiality shield in place for our clients until we have established that the other party is serious and an initial meeting has been arranged.
