Houlihan Lokey Has Acquired McQueen

The transaction, which was completed on September 17, 2015, substantially increases Houlihan Lokey's reach in the consumer sector, and expands the size of the firm’s Consumer, Food & Retail platform to approximately 45 professionals in the United States and Europe. Clients of both firms will benefit from the combined depth of sector expertise and broader global platform. Since McQueen’s founding, the London-based firm has had an advisory role in more than 100 transactions worth more than €10 billion.

“We anticipate that this move will strengthen our global reach and execution expertise, broaden our private equity relationships, and provide us with access to Houlihan Lokey’s well-established product offerings beyond our historical M&A and Capital Markets businesses. We expect this to benefit our clients around the world, and we are delighted to be joining such a successful and admired firm.”
Shaun Browne
Partner, McQueen

“The McQueen team is an excellent addition to our industry-leading North American Consumer, Food & Retail Group and allows Houlihan Lokey to offer the same deep sector expertise to clients outside North America, particularly across Europe.”
Jay Novak  
Global Head of the Consumer, Food & Retail Group
