We have advised RSM UK on its significant strategic investment in and acquisition of RSM Ireland, one of the top tier accounting firms in Ireland.
Both firms are members of RSM International - the sixth largest network of audit, tax and consulting firms globally. The network spans more than 120 countries, over 860 offices and more than 57,000 people, with global revenues of $8 billion.
This investment will deliver direct access to a broader range of services for clients in Ireland including cyber security, ESG, and deepen sector expertise in public sector, technology, life sciences and financial services.
The investment also includes RSM UK acquiring the ownership of the business from the current Board. The two firms will continue to operate as independent firms and RSM Ireland’s leadership team will continue to be responsible for the development and management of the Irish firm.
Commenting on the acquisition, Corporate Partner Andrew Edge said: "This is an exciting investment for RSM UK, with whom we work closely across a range of disciplines. It was a particular pleasure to work so closely with our Dublin team, led by Adam Griffiths."
Our cross-border team was led by Corporate Partners Andrew Edge and Paul Thorpe in the UK Corporate team and Partner Adam Griffiths in the Dublin Corporate team. Further support was provided by Associate Aria Howorth Oram in the UK Corporate team, Partner Graham Samuel-Gibbon in the UK Tax and Incentives team, and Associates Rachel McCausland and Kevin Keenan in the Dublin Corporate team.
