Mergers and acquisitions

We are proud that our team of international mergers and acquisitions (M&A) lawyers, comprising 350 lawyers in more than 43 offices across 26 jurisdictions, is a number-one team for European midmarket corporate transactions. 

As well as a wealth of experience advising on the most complex, strategic projects for our clients (including many over £100m), we also advise on a large volume of smaller transactions. Variety, flexibility and responsiveness are the building blocks of our team.

Our clients benefit from our knowledge of local regulations and many years’ experience of advising on cross-border M&A transactions. Wherever the transaction is led from, our international M&A team provides a seamless and integrated relationship-led service, liaising closely with our clients and their in-house legal teams, ensuring that they remain informed and involved at every stage of the transaction.

Our international M&A lawyers are trained in our bespoke project management process. We train our people in project management theory every year and we have invested in excess of £15m in ensuring that we are able to maintain a consistently high level of transaction delivery: making sure transactions are delivered on time and on budget. We take responsibility, and accept accountability, for delivering an efficient process that frees up our clients’ time to focus on the issues that matter most to them.

Our international M&A lawyers are also supported by a wealth of experienced, sector-focused lawyers who understand the regulatory frameworks that our clients operate in and also the impact on transactions of the key issues that affect our clients’ businesses. This in-depth sector knowledge means that we can add real value to the M&A process.

Our unrivalled ability to deliver a seamless international M&A offering, together with market-leading sector knowledge and experience, ensures that our clients always receive strategic guidance that is fully tailored to meet their requirements.
