Acquisitions and Divestments

Effecting a growth or exit strategy is probably one of the most important developments for any business and its stakeholders.​​

Whether that involves receiving or making debt or equity investments into businesses, effecting a management buyout, buying, selling or merging a business, or entering into a joint venture with another company, our corporate lawyers can help advise and support you. ​

Our team of experts are used to tailoring the nature and level of our assistance to our clients' needs. You may be in-house counsel working on an acquisition for your organisation, and need help with the legal due diligence process and report. Or you may be a small business owner in absolutely unfamiliar territory. It doesn't matter. We can help you through the transaction. ​

We are also experienced in working as part of a team of advisers. If you run a professional services firm yourself, we can provide additional gearing and transaction-drafting support to help you make it as cost-efficient as possible for your client.​

Whatever your needs, we'll work within your time and budget constraints, with the flexibility to provide as much or as little legal advice and support as you require. And whatever your strategy, we aim to help you achieve your goal.

The London interbank offered rate, or Libor, has been a benchmark for establishing borrowing terms around the world since 1986, used in tens of millions of contracts covering everything from mortgages and student loans to global bonds and derivatives. But Libor’s shortcomings, which mainly include a vulnerability to manipulation revealed by several crises and scandals, led global financial regulators to replace it with more secure benchmarks.
Environmental, social and governance issues have become a priority not just for investors, but also regulators. In recent years, the EU has focused on orienting private investments toward sustainable finance, beginning with taxonomy regulation to more clearly define sustainable activities. It’s also developing ecolabels for financial products and setting climate change benchmarks.
