Mergers and acquisitions continue to deliver the strategic objectives of global business, particularly in the face of unprecedented change, providing tremendous opportunities to reshape organisations and access new markets.
As a law firm we examine the driving factors, risks and opportunities clients face across industries and geographies, and assess the strategies for delivering successful M&A.
This M&A hub presents our insights, training and other key resources to support our clients in planning and delivering M&A projects.
M&A building blocks
Our on-demand webinar series breaks down the essential building blocks required to ensure an M&A process runs smoothly
In this webinar, which is the first in our JV Building Blocks series, we consider some key issues to address when considering a joint venture including due diligence topics, operating structures and an overview of the typical documentation required.
Funding and Dilution
One of the key areas of negotiation when forming a joint venture is the future funding requirements of the joint venture and how these will be fulfilled.
Minority Protections, control and deadlock
Whatever the complexion of a joint venture, from a deadlocked arrangement to one with minority shareholders, the questions of how control is to be exercised and minority position protected will be key.

Planning for the best process
In this webinar we look at how to plan the best process for a privately negotiated M&A transaction, including the key matters to be considered in the early stages. We consider the buyer’s and seller’s objectives, establishing the deal perimeter (including asset sales v share sale and pre-sale re-organisations) as well as a comparison of the possible sale processes and the key early stage documents.
In this webinar we discuss merger control, in particular the main stages in merger control analysis (including the importance of undertaking this analysis at an early stage), deals which may be more likely to raise substantive competition concerns and appropriate protections for transaction documents.
Beyond COVID-19: Corporate/M&A outlook
The impact of COVID-19, including its wide-ranging effect on “business-as-usual” activities, raises a number of issues for companies. Listed companies are having to consider their ongoing disclosure obligations and how to hold shareholder meetings, and all companies are reviewing the implications of the coronavirus for their financial position and performance, as well as their financial arrangements.

Foreign Investment Regulation
Foreign investment regulation has become increasingly relevant for the execution of mergers and acquisitions. More and more countries are adopting restrictive foreign investment regulation to protect their national assets and critical industries.
