Mergers and Acquisitions

We act for both private and public companies on all aspects of M&A work. Our experienced and pro-active team draws on the support of the firm’s other core practice areas to offer clients a fully integrated and cost-effective service.

Sectors and Services

Our practice encompasses a wide variety of private company M&A work, including acquisitions, disposals, mergers, solvent corporate restructuring and joint ventures.

We also have broad experience of public takeovers and the Takeover Code. We have acted for the bidder on a significant number of takeovers and have also advised the boards of target companies responding to takeover bids, both recommended and hostile. We advise on both traditional contractual offers and schemes of arrangement.

We have strong sector knowledge across a variety of areas, including healthcare, retail and leisure and technology.

We work across our core practice groups, including real estate, commercial, employment, corporate tax and IP, as well as cross-border through our LexWork International network, in order to offer a seamless transaction process – from initial structuring, due diligence, the drafting and negotiation of transaction documentation, to transitional arrangements and practical integration.

We have a dynamic, partner-led, team that focuses on understanding our clients’ business needs in order to satisfy commercial objectives in a timely and cost-effective manner.
