Mergers & Acquisitions

We handle a variety of domestic and international transactional work: Mergers and acquisitions, demergers and restructurings, joint ventures, takeovers, equity financings, privatisations, initial public offerings and issues of share capital.

Related tax questions involve our lawyers advising on the most tax-efficient means of acquiring, divesting or restructuring assets, any relevant negotiations, and ensuring the smooth completion of the resulting deal, plus dealing with any queries from the tax authorities.

Whether conducting multi-jurisdictional due diligence on a global transaction or preparing a stand- alone local asset for sale to an international buyer, our team has the depth and breath of experience you need. We can mobilise experienced staff quickly to review large volumes of material in Data Rooms across the region and provide the detailed analysis and strategic thinking critical to getting the right result.
