Ali Sharifi (Head of Corporate Finance Advisory)

I have more than 17 years' experience advising corporate finance transactions, specialising in private equity transactions, and mergers and acquisitions. I offer my clients a pragmatic, experience-based service, to find the best solution for all parties.

Previous industry experience has been very useful in this regard. For example, I joined Courtaulds Textiles in a turnaround and post-acquisition implementation role for different business units, and at HLB Kidsons, I was instrumental in starting up the corporate finance capability in the north west.

I am a massive Manchester United supporter – a key factor in choice of location for me, my wife and our two teenage boys. I also manage a junior football club (Under 15s) where I am a part-qualified coach.
