    Mergers & Acquisition Legal Services

Mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures are all significant stages in a business’s growth journey and none are without their risks and pitfalls.

We work alongside your business to offer guidance and support on critical issues as well as high quality, practical advice to get the deal done.

Our Mergers & Acquisition legal expertise

Our M&A team handles the full range of transactions including cross-border acquisitions and divestments, to complex reorganisations and restructurings, joint ventures, management buy-outs and buy-ins, corporate rescues and distressed transactions. Our clients range from  quoted and private companies, financial services organisations, management teams through to founder and entrepreneur led businesses.

For each transaction, you’ll work with a bespoke partner-led team that delivers integrated, specialist and multidisciplinary advice, from our real estate, competition, tax, pensions and employment, intellectual property and IT practice areas.

Cross-border transactions

If you’re a multinational business, we can project manage cross-border transactions, utilising our network of international lawyers and our lawyers on the ground to provide a seamless service whatever the deal complexities - be it for UK companies, or assisting corporates based in the US, Europe, the Middle East or Asia.

Our approach is to work tenaciously and creatively to find the best solution for your business, ensuring that matters proceed quickly and efficiently. We focus on getting a successful outcome.
