I have found a very nice company in the UK & am at the exact stage of the search process I have no experience. The M&A part.

I have completed vendor and commercial due diligence for much larger deals - it is the mechanics I am thinking about getting support. The ideal situation would be involved with a search accelerator, but failing that how might the community consider navigating the steps between "finding a deal" and "completing a deal".

I do get it, one can just do this completely independently.. It seems to me worth the time and money to get a bit more experience, thoughtfulness and frankly testing my own day-to-day stupidity. It is a bigger deal - £3-4M EBITDA and the owners has suggested he sees the business in the £15M range.
