Practices: Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions

We advise on all aspects of mergers and acquisitions transactions in the public and private markets, many of which have cross-border elements. We advise domestic and international buyers, sellers and their financial advisers on all the acquisition and disposal of private companies (including controlled auctions and distressed assets), public company acquisitions (including recommended and hostile takeovers and public-to-private transactions), mergers and demergers, joint ventures and spin-offs. We are consistently ranked as a leading firm for our expertise in this field. We work in seamless co-operation with members of other practice groups to respond to the individual requirements of each transaction.
