Leonard Curtis acquisition of Portland Business and Financial Solutions

Client: Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group
Services provided: Acquisition due diligence


Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group strengthened its capabilities across the South Coast with the purchase of restructuring specialist Portland which has provided services to businesses of all sizes facing financial distress for more than 20 years.

Leonard Curtis – which employs 239 staff across 19 UK offices – already has a presence in Southampton with the deal adding significant weight to its South Coast footprint.

The purchase is the first since Leonard Curtis attracted investment from Arete Capital Partners in August 2021.

Jenny Kirkham who advised said, “Following its investment by Arete earlier in the year, it was a pleasure to support the Leonard Curtis team with its first bolt–on acquisition of Portland. Portland is a leading restructuring specialist which will provide geographical support and expansion for Leonard Curtis.”
