EY's Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) practice offers our clients professional transaction experience. We help clients determine the right deal to do, and then assist them in doing the deal right.

Within TAS, Transaction Diligence encompasses the strategic development and execution of an appropriate transaction structure, with an emphasis on the execution of buy side and sell side financial due diligence.

Our team works to understand profit drivers and trends, challenge assumptions of future performance, and assist with purchase agreements and post-closing transaction matters.
