Successful negotiation and completion of an M&A transaction requires lawyers who understand their client’s business and the key drivers of the deal, including the risks associated with the business and the proposed transaction, and who are able to manage the transaction in a pragmatic, efficient and cost-effective way.
Our team of experienced corporate and M&A lawyers will work with you and your corporate finance and tax advisers to effect innovative solutions and transaction structures that address the risks and challenges raised by these complex types of transactions.
As seller, buyer, financial investor or a as part of a company’s management team, we can advise you on all aspects of your proposed transaction involving the sale or acquisition of companies, assets or businesses, both in the UK or around the world. As a team and with our partners globally, we offer the full spectrum M&A services, including structuring, targeted legal due diligence, debt finance, and preparation and negotiation of transaction documentation to achieve your company’s objectives.
The LCN team can assist you through all stages of a transaction, from preparing the business for sale or performing due diligence, to negotiating the purchase agreement, coordinating the closing across multiple jurisdictions, and integrating the operations of the resulting business. We are able to guide and advise you from deal inception right through to business integration.
Our clients have included sellers, buyers, financial advisers and joint venture partners. Our team has advised UK and international organisations on all aspects of buying and selling private companies and businesses. These transactions include domestic, cross-border and span a range of industry sectors.
