  • Conduct due diligence to identify risks and challenges and address them before they threaten the success of deals
  • Prioritise the big issues and help you navigate through complex regulatory requirements
  • Execute end-to-end transaction management for the duration of deals and support all negotiations 
  • Consider potential litigation risks and, if required, embed disputes lawyers into deal teams to stress test warranties, indemnities, liability limitations and jurisdiction clauses
  • Guide you through all communications with stakeholders
