        Mergers & Acquisitions

        Delivering mergers and acquisitions success takes experience and deep legal and industry expertise.

        Our corporate law experts direct mergers and acquisitions at all levels. For private companies, PLCs, private equity firms, management teams, partnerships and LLPs, in the UK and overseas, M&A sits at the heart of what we do best.

        One of the five most active M&A teams in the UK legal market, we are known for our expertise in managing high profile, complex deals quickly and efficiently. What sets us apart is our ability to use this experience to identify the issues that can affect deal value, to understand them and to implement decisive solutions, so that your deal continues unaffected.

        The real value to our clients comes from you knowing that we combine this ‘large firm’ skill and success, without sacrificing industry and regional understanding. We work hard to become a part of your transactional team, understanding your needs and organisational culture, so that we can work collaboratively to achieve your commercial objectives.
