Mergers & Acquisitions

We regularly act in relation to significant M&A activity in our jurisdictions, whether as lead counsel for strictly local matters or as part of an international team for multi-jurisdictional transactions.

In addition to the negotiation of transaction documents, we assist clients with disclosure and due diligence exercises as well as obtain competition authority clearances. Our focus is a practical one; looking to allow clients the certainty to conclude a deal in the knowledge that their risk has been identified and mitigated appropriately.

Competition Law

It is important for businesses to understand what constitutes a dominant market position in order to avoid unnecessarily or unknowingly becoming involved in anti-competitive practices, especially during mergers and acquisitions. Penalties can be significant and, potentially, directors may be disqualified or worse. In addition to regularly gaining merger approvals, our commercial team also advise a number of major businesses on the practical effect of the competition regimes on their businesses.
