Thanks to decades of experience and close collaboration with multidisciplinary professionals, we are able to deliver our services in almost every industry sector.
Founded in 1981 T&T is the longest existing independent Dutch M&A boutique offering specialized services connected to the buying and selling, consultancy and negotiations of mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances.
Since there are no outside shareholders T&T acts completely independently through senior specialists. In the beginning of the nineties Paul co-founded and became chairman of the first platform of M&A specialists in Europe. In 2004 Paul co-founded a network of European M&A offices in his conviction that there was an opportunity for crossborder cooperation between midmarket international professionals.
Extending contacts with other M&A boutiques spread around the globe at 5 continents nowadays resulted in M&A Worldwide (www.m-a-worldwide.com) with over 40 members in as many countries creating deals on a regular basis.
T&T may as strategic board advisor already add value in the so-called ZERO-phase to which too little attention is paid as well as to the Negotiation phase which follows later on.
Before it is decided to start a Sellside or Buyside or Merger/JV process a strategic analysis should be held which outcome can prevent that a wrong and costly path and course of action is being taken.
T&T has several hundred of deals experience and can guide our clients to the route that suits them best in 2 to 4 advisory weeks lead time -depending on complexity – resulting in a step-by- step action plan.
Experience also plays a decisive role for every negotiation phase whereby the creation of a win/win situation is an indispensable condition. T&T will be happy to help achieving this through earlier knowledge and experience acquired in many transactions.
T&T has put a specific focus on the Financial Services, Payment and LXRY goods sector with consequential deals done in nichemarkets like Wealth/Asset management and Corporate Services. T&T forms a team per assignment of multi-disciplinairy specialist with added values to reach core solutions.
Slogans used during the process are
“When buying or selling Your company: think T&T”
“T&T is Your perfect matchmaker for mergers and acquisitions”
“T&T is Your guarantee of quality M&A “
