Harlequin Group Limited – connecting clients to the future

17 December 2021

RSM’s M&A and private equity team has advised on the Harlequin Group’s sale to Telent, a technology company specialising in digital infrastructure.

The client

Founded in 1993, the Harlequin Group is a leading telecom and IT consultancy provider that has specialist knowledge and experience in the fields of site acquisition, estates management, town, and country planning, site design, site build, and IT services. The acquisition will bring Harlequin’s expertise in acquiring and designing to Telent, allowing them to provide a comprehensive and expanded ADC (acquire, design, and construct) service. The transaction strengthens Telent’s current offering and its position within the telecoms industry at an ideal time of 5G expansion in the UK.

RSM’s solution 

RSM’s M&A and private equity team project-managed and negotiated all aspects of the deal through to completion.

Transaction team: James Wild, Rikesh Patel, and Ben Everson.


‘This proved to be a complicated process that benefited from the professional competence and dedication of everyone at RSM. I would personally like to thank the team, who worked tirelessly to get the deal over the line and were a pleasure to work with.’
