• Rothschild & Co acquires Livingstone in the UK

    On 10 December 2019, Rothschild & Co and Livingstone announced that Rothschild & Co’s Global Advisory business acquired Livingstone in the UK

    Livingstone's UK business is successful and long-established, providing M&A, debt and special situations advice to privately owned companies in the UK lower mid-market segment. Since its formation in 1976, the team has grown to include 34 bankers who have an outstanding track record and strong client relationships.

    "Rothschild & Co's Global Advisory business continues to focus on mid and large cap transactions for both public and private corporations, as well as financial sponsors, sovereigns, and family-controlled businesses. It has been considering broadening its offering in the UK lower mid-market space for some time, following the establishment of its successful franchise in the same segment of the French market." commented Robert Leitão, Managing Partner, Rothschild & Co.

    Alex Midgen, Partner and Co-Head of UK Global Advisory said, "This is an opportunity to materially grow an already successful UK business through access to Rothschild & Co's strong sector expertise and global reach via our network of over 50 offices in more than 40 countries. Through our platform, we will be helping Livingstone clients who are predominantly UK private and family-owned companies, entrepreneurs and private equity owned businesses in the lower mid-market segment to achieve their growth ambitions."

    Patrick Groarke, Partner at Livingstone concluded, "Rothschild & Co's acquisition of Livingstone's UK business is a powerful validation of the quality of the team that we have built and the strength of our franchise in this vibrant market. We are looking forward to building upon this firm foundation together with our new colleagues."
