In the early years of Cooney Carey, we worked primarily as a business consultancy, advising clients on all aspects of business development and restructuring. Unsurprisingly, we’ve retained a keen interest in that area, helping our clients to grow their businesses into smarter, leaner organisations.

Our specialist business advisory services include;

Corporate Recovery and Restructuring

We excel at examining businesses and ascertaining the key factors essential to their success. We then design and implement a plan to enable the business to bridge the gap from its current situation to where it needs to be. We also monitor the change process and its effects. Our credibility and experience is essential to this process, as are our relationships with banks and other stakeholders.

Banking and Funding

We can clearly ascertain the funding our clients need and how much they can service. We know which institutions offer funding and how to approach them. We use our well-honed negotiation skills to source the best and most flexible funding deals for our clients.


We understand different business situations and projects and can identify the decisions required, whether these relate to hiring and firing, capital expenditure, investment, cessation of trading or other areas. We gather and evaluate the relevant information and guide our client to make the correct decision.

Change Management

We help our clients to identify the essential changes they need to implement in order to protect or grow the business. We guide them through this process, in the knowledge that each strategy requires tweaking as it develops. Our experience in this field means we know when and how to implement those amendments.

Financial Modelling

We design financial models for our clients to gather relevant measurable data and present it in a manner that enables effective decision-making. Inherent in this process is our skill in devising complex spreadsheets that can be easily populated by users.

Negotiation Management

We are adept at understanding a client’s standpoint and developing their position to facilitate a negotiation. We direct the discussion and piece together the issues towards the eventual formulation of an attractive agreement and sign-off by all parties.  

Project Management

When it comes to planning and managing project implementation (which can include court cases), including liaising with team members and other professionals, our breadth of experience is often called upon. We engage in the decision-making and evaluation process throughout. 

Grants and Incentives

We work with start-ups, mid-sized companies and multinationals investing in Ireland for the first time or growing their operations here. No matter what size your company is, we can help you identify and qualify for the appropriate grants and incentives.

Mergers, Acquisitions and Disposals

Knowledge and experience are essential to make these significant and often time-consuming financial transactions a success. We will work closely with you to ensure the best outcome in each case. Acquisitions are all about identifying and evaluating targets, negotiating the deal and managing the completion. The Disposal process includes forming a realistic valuation of the business, soliciting offers, negotiating an agreement and then managing completion.
