Mergers & Acquisitions

Our M&A team has extensive experience advising on mergers, acquisitions, takeovers and corporate restructurings.

While we act for a number of mining and resource clients we also advise clients operating in other sectors including those in the IP, technology and biotechnology, pharmaceutical, healthcare, manufacturing, industrial and agribusiness industries.

We advise targets and bidders, directors, shareholders, investment banks and other participants and have advised clients on a number of takeovers and schemes of arrangement, friendly and hostile.

We assist our clients as they navigate the legal, strategic and commercial issues involved in each transaction. We stand firmly with them and we focus on ensuring they are provided with relevant, practical and viable outcomes.

We provide comprehensive support such as:

  • Structuring acquisitions or disposals
  • Document preparation
  • Due diligence investigations
  • Negotiations
  • Regulatory approvals and completion
