Naomi Thornton is a completion accounts specialist who has advised on several hundred M&A transactions. Formerly a director with a Big 4 accounting firm, she now operates independently – the only specialist in this area to do so.

Many millions of pounds are jeopardised each year because of completion accounts mechanisms which are ambiguously worded or inappropriately structured. Dealing with the consequences can be costly, both in terms of deal value and of management time.

The good news is that many of the pitfalls associated with completion accounts are avoidable. By reviewing the sale and purchase agreement (SPA) before it is signed, Naomi Thornton has helped hundreds of investors to reduce risk and lessen the chances of a dispute.

As well as advising on the SPA, Naomi is able to assist in completion accounts disputes and carry out expert determinations. She also offers training to those involved in M&A transactions, whether as investors or advisers.
