What We Do


Capital Raising, M&A, Buyouts, IPOs, Financial Structuring:
Breslin has a successful investment, advisory and transaction history with over 80 transactions, predominantly in Biotech and Pharma markets.

Secondary Transactions:
The secondary market broadens the opportunity set for private equity investors, corporates, and privates by providing liquidity and by offering a tool to rebalance and diversify portfolios. 
In 2004, BRESLIN pioneered the execution of private equity secondary transactions in Europe and has since then handled the successful secondary exits of a number of portfolios for BAYER Pharma, followed by many more for industrial, financial and private investors with a volume of over $800m.
