We advise bidders, targets, directors, shareholders, investment banks and other market participants on the acquisition of interests in and/or control of public companies.
Public company takeovers uniquely require the application of a detailed understanding of a range of domestic and international laws and regulations to shape and define the strategies and tactics which will deliver successful outcomes to our clients in fast moving and often high profile situations.
Our experience in the key markets in which we operate is outstanding. We have advised on many of the most significant and ground-breaking deals and our teams are acknowledged leaders in their fields.
In times of increased shareholder, public and press scrutiny, we stand firmly with our clients to deliver measured, impartial advice and strategic direction.
