There is no such thing as a standard private M&A process.
Our lawyers have expertise in the full range of challenges that private M&A can present, be it carve-outs, pre-sale restructuring and reorganisations, financing, risk management, certainty, disclosure, navigating pre-emption processes, managing auctions or specific liabilities. Not only are our M&A lawyers experts in their field, they also combine commercial pragmatism with an understanding of the specialist issues that can arise as part of the negotiation process.
Clients value our ability to execute deals seamlessly and efficiently while managing the risk profile which is appropriate to their circumstances: a vital requirement in today’s deal environment.
