Mergers and Acquisitions

The key to success for a corporate transaction is thorough planning and structuring. We work closely with our clients and their advisers to ensure that the relevant steps are taken to implement the proposed structure, and that this carries through to the running of the business following completion.

Our broad based expertise covers all the issues listed below, whether acting for public companies, private companies, management teams or owner managed businesses. We act for sellers and buyers alike and have a keen sense of what is commercial and market practice from both perspectives.

The key to success is that we work closely with your advisors, and are able to anticipate issues with our wealth of experience to act fast. We have a valued and dedicated support team across the firm’s other disciplines to deliver tailored advice to you.
