About us

Watersheds is a specialist firm of corporate finance advisers which helps clients to buy and sell private companies and raise money.  We are all qualified accountants, which is important because we deal with highly sensitive situations, so integrity and professionalism are critical.  We understand the importance of confidentiality.

We do not provide accounting or tax services and Watersheds is not part of a firm of accountants; we are independent.  This means we can be truly objective in all that we do and there is no risk of conflicts of interest.  We only ever work on one side of a transaction. 

Unlike other advisors, we work entirely on contingent fees.  We do not charge up front fees or retainers.  We are confident enough in our ability to deliver successful outcomes that we only get paid when we deliver results.  This makes us proactive, dynamic and focused.

Our team of experienced Partners have a proven track record and high success rate of delivering successful deals for our clients.  We are “hands on” and all of our work is Partner led.

We choose to work with small and medium sized businesses for whom the transaction is often a life changing event - the opportunity for a client to run their own business, or realise a significant capital gain is a true "Watershed".

Established in 1998, we have adopted the same business model for two decades operating from offices in Northampton and Swindon.  We work for clients throughout England.
