LAVA Advisory Partners is delighted to welcome Dorota Filipkowska to their growing team. Dorota, an ICAEW-qualified Chartered Accountant, has huge experience in international transactions and mid-market deals for both corporate and private equity clients. Her international outlook and energetic, attentive approach will benefit LAVA Advisory’s clients enormously.
Dorota joins LAVA after a distinguished career in the transaction services team at Deloitte in London. It was there that she cut her teeth in financial due diligence and sale and purchase agreement advisory, while secondments to the Netherlands and Switzerland exposed her to international M&A negotiations.
As we see the M&A climate shift further towards off-market and relationship-based deals, we are investing in a diverse team of financial professionals who have the skills to guide our clients through efficient, discreet and swift M&A processes. I have no doubt that Dorota will be a huge asset to our team, helping us in our mission to hunt down and deliver the best M&A solutions for our clients
Simon Woodcock Partner at LAVA
Dorota commented, “I am immensely excited about the vast opportunities we can create for our clients at LAVA Advisory Partners. The team’s out of the box, practical approach to M&A, combined with decades of diverse M&A experience represents a unique offering in a crowded M&A market. I am looking forward to the journey ahead, both for our team and our clients”.
Dorota’s arrival reflects LAVA’s growth trajectory and the firm expects to make further people announcements in the coming months. LAVA’s bold, skin-in-the-game approach puts their clients’ needs first and, crucially, fosters long-term relationships, as was shown in the firm’s recent investment in Source BMX alongside incoming institutional investor, BGF.
LAVA is especially skilled at identifying consolidation ideas in sectors where there are distinct opportunities for value creation. It is this creativity, underpinned by their strategic focus, that is making them stand out in the constantly changing M&A landscape.
