Mergers & Acquisitions
Our Mergers & Acquisitions team is one of the most respected in Australia. We have a strong record of being involved in some of the most complex public company takeovers, takeover defences, capital raisings, acquisitions, mergers and reconstructions in Australia.
Many of the transactions that we work on involve multiple jurisdictions. We work in dedicated cross-functional client teams bringing a wide range of legal experience and industry knowledge to each deal. This integrated approach gives you access to complementary areas of law including competition, financial services, tax, dispute resolution and workplace relations and employment.
In transactional work, it is especially important to achieve pragmatic business outcomes, always considering the client’s priorities and commercial sensitivities. The key to our success in mergers and acquisitions is the size of our team, our energy as committed dynamic professionals and our positive attitude to driving our clients towards their desired commercial outcomes.
Our depth of experience and market knowledge means clients trust us to find practical solutions in their merger and acquisition deals, whatever the value.
