The firms all scored major roles in the £524m takeover of Domestic & General Group (D&G), a FTSE250 company up until now. The deal was announced this morning.
Freshfields advised Advent International on the takeover, which saw the private equity house offer £14.25 per share in cash for D&G, a 13 per cent premium on last Thursday’s (30 August) closing price. Private equity co-head Chris Bown, who manages the relationship with Advent, led the team.
Norton Rose meanwhile advised the company, with corporate finance partners Mark Bankes and Glenn Hall leading.
D&G’s management took separate advice from Macfarlanes.
