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.
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 both for the bidder and the target on a significant number of takeovers, both recommended and hostile. We advise on both traditional contractual offers and schemes of arrangement.
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 focusses on understanding our client’s business needs in order to satisfy commercial objectives in a timely and cost-effective manner.
In addition we sponsor the http://www.aim-awards.co.uk/awards/ Diversity Champion award. This has been created to identify companies, listed on the AIM stockmarket, who are leaders in terms of fostering diverse thinking and demonstrating that diversity and inclusion is built into their workplace environment.
