Testimonials

Why clients recommend us

'When my husband’s diagnosis became terminal, we needed to plan for my future. Never having intended to sell, we really didn’t know where to start. That is when we turned to David Cohen for help. David listened. His compassion and commitment were obvious and his advice and guidance from day one put us immediately at ease. His ability to find contacts, solutions, ideas and opportunities is inspiring. He is incredibly proactive, professional and knowledgeable. His negotiation skills, contract advice and general ability to oversee and manage the transaction with our buyer would have been impossible to achieve on our own. I am incredibly grateful to David and would recommend his services to anyone considering selling a business.'

As owner manager of my business for more than 35 years, I chose David & DCA to develop and implement a personal strategy as a route to exit and retirement. David showed considerable insight and expertise around the issues and options associated with a person in my position and showed great patience in providing advice and support as the process unfolded. His flexibility, accessible style and considerable wealth of experience proved invaluable. Expert ‘Business Exit Services’ upon which one can rely are not cheap and difficult to access at any cost. I would not hesitate to recommend David and his team at DCA to anyone requiring a proactive, value adding service, to establish and implement a sustainable exit strategy, that can be expertly delivered.

"The Company Directors approached David on recommendation to act for them in the sale of their Consultancy Practice. Through a variety of unconnected events beyond our or David's control it was necessary to recommence the sale process on three separate occasions over a protracted period. Throughout this David remained calm, diligent and dedicated to the task at hand and explored various innovative financial routes and solutions to facilitate the sale process. During the final stage, up to the point of sale, David acted for me personally to negotiate with the purchasers directly a satisfactory outcome for which I remain very grateful."
