Case studies

Navigating a politically sensitive sector


A US private equity client wanted to understand the potential pitfalls of their planned approach to the acquisition of a funerals business in the UK, and how they could anticipate and mitigate any political and regulatory scepticism. 


GC worked alongside the investor for several months, providing briefings on the various affected submarkets and regulatory environment, as well as communications and messaging strategy. We also helped to identify potential leaders of the future business through our networks. 


Our strategic advice helped the client to understand fully the likely political and regulatory response to the planned investment, and how they should respond both to facilitate the transaction and protect their reputation.
