The firm was engaged by an English subsidiary of a large listed American company to acquire a Welsh company. The transaction was challenging in that the target company had subsidiaries in America and Australia and a branch office in Dubai.
We headed the transaction and co-ordinated with the client’s overseas lawyers to ensure that the transaction was completed on time and in a cost effective manner. Apart from dealing with the different laws and customs involved, we had to work in three different time zones.
The transaction was headed by Hitendra Patel (Corporate Partner) and was assisted by John Spratt (Commercial Partner), Carol Shaw (Employment Partner), Catherine O’Riordan (Company Commercial Assistant), Christine Ward (Tax Consultant)
