We regularly guide clients through acquisitions and disposals across a wide range of sectors. A significant proportion of our transactional work has an international element.  

Our team is experienced in advising public companies on City Code bids, acting for both the bidder and the target company.  

We regularly act as project managers and take a hands-on approach to transaction management,  whether a transaction is a one-off event or a common feature of your strategy. We will build a bespoke team to fit the transaction, drawing on specialist legal expertise as required to resolve the often complex legal issues raised by M&A transactions. Our multi-disciplinary deal team understand the importance of providing a seamless service including when working as part of a wider deal team of financial, tax and other advisers.

Our M&A work frequently involves multiple jurisdictions.  We are able to draw upon our established network of international law firm partners to advise on local law issues.    

Our ability to handle mid-market acquisitions efficiently and often with a pre-planned structure and process designed with our client sets us apart. Efficiency in the deal process is key. We have developed a bespoke suite of M&A documents for repeat M&A transactions for some of our clients. 

‘Very strong balance of capability across the team, from a technical and commercially pragmatic perspective.’
