Acquisition and leveraged finance

We provide transaction support to senior loan, mezzanine and high-yield financing parties, and to a wide range of private equity investors, management teams and corporate borrowers in relation to business acquisitions, recapitalisations, management buyouts and refinancing. We advise clients on all stages of a transaction, from bid strategy and documentation through to post-transaction support. We also provide the practical business advice clients need in any acquisition, including employment, pension, tax, intellectual property and immigration issues. And we go beyond this, too, serving as a valued partner by identifying new opportunities for clients when they arise.

With a corporate and finance presence in each of our international offices, as well as a strong network of trusted international law firms, we are well placed to provide support on cross-border transactions and in relation to complex multi-jurisdictional international group acquisitions. These close relationships, together with our up-to-date legal knowledge, mean we deliver first-class, commercial and efficient solutions to ensure the deal gets done.
