Mergers & Acquisitions

Our mergers and acquisitions practice forms a large part of the work that we do, and we have advised on numerous takeovers, schemes of arrangement and other transactions, small and large, in this area.

We will work with the client and the corporate advisory team from the outset in order to structure all aspects of an offer, or to formulate a defence. Our team will commonly consist of a partner, a senior lawyer and a junior lawyer, however if the task demands more resources, then with a lawyer pool of over 30 experienced corporate lawyers, we are able to devote resources as required. We are experienced in complex bids, or hostile situations, and have substantial experience in commencing and defending Takeovers Panel applications.

Our mergers and acquisitions services include:

  • bid strategy;
  • preparing for, formulating and defending takeover bids;
  • drafting of Bidder’s and Target’s Statements;
  • mergers by scheme of arrangement;
  • share or asset acquisitions and divestments;
  • demergers;
  • private equity acquisitions; and
  • obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals and ASX and ASIC waivers relevant to mergers or acquisitions.
