Special Committee Advisory
Greenhill is renowned for its independence, experience and discretion and is often called into special situations which require the delivery of unconflicted advice.
In many cases, this involves advising a Special Committee of the Board of Directors which has been formed due to the conflicts in relation to a possible transaction. Often our role involves not only assisting with a transaction process, but also delivering a fairness opinion.
Our Managing Directors and professionals in North America, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Australia, Brazil and Japan have advised the Special Committees of numerous leading companies as they have navigated complex transaction processes.
Below we highlight a few of the transactions on which we have advised in this area:
