Corporate/M&A and capital markets

To protect and grow your business you need advisors with great market knowledge and a sharp commercial instinct. You also need a law firm with the right international expertise to help you shape your plans effectively. We place commerciality and pragmatism at the centre of our advice, and sector expertise is in our DNA. We are proud of our reputation as one of the world's leading tech-focused M&A practices. But we are also recognised for our M&A work in Life Sciences & Healthcare, Energy & Infrastructure, Real Estate and Private Wealth. We stay connected to these sectors. The result – clients know that we will make a difference to their deal, and they stick with us.

Our teams look after clients throughout their corporate life-cycle – from set-up, through early-stage VC funding rounds, to larger investments such as private equity and M&A, to exits through, for example, trade sales or IPOs. We have acted on buy-side and sell-side deals of all shapes and sizes, both public and private, nationally and internationally. While each deal is unique, we are confident that we have seen the key issues that arise many times before.  

Internationally we are specialists in cross-border transactions with a team covering 17 jurisdictions. As well as technical excellence, our strengths are teamwork, the way we share local knowledge and how we understand cultural differences – all key factors that influence the successful outcome of any cross-border transaction. We regularly advise on eye-catching deals – like Babylon Health's record-breaking USD550 million expansion into the US and Asia, Vivion Investments' EUR1 billion bond issuance and complex restructuring (one of the biggest deals of its kind in the property sector), Affirma Capital on its MBO of Standard Chartered's private equity business, or Inflexion on its backing of the management buyout of Dutch IT outsourcing training business Calco Group BV. In each and every case we work to know our client's business, so we can anticipate the potential challenges before they become issues, de-risking deals and delivering the best outcome for our client.
