Mergers and acquisitions

We move fast and make deals happen.

When it comes to mergers and acquisitions, your business needs a practical approach focussed on cutting through complexity and providing commercial solutions on the issues that matter. That is what we do best. We combine technical skill with industry knowledge to provide the right team for your transaction.

Our mergers and acquisitions professionals represent ASX listed and private businesses across all industries, with operations in South Australia, interstate and overseas. Working closely with in-house corporate development teams, in-house legal teams, boards and external corporate advisers, we regularly manage and advise on all aspects of significant transactions.

With years of experience working on some of South Australia’s largest and most complex private and public transactions, we understand the market and commercial drivers. Our senior lawyers’ experience as directors and company secretaries of private and listed companies, allows them to combine technical excellence with practical know-how.

Your business will benefit from our ability to deliver technical and strategic services in a range of complementary areas, including corporate finance, taxation, dispute resolution and workplace law. The result? Specialist, tailored and timely advice.
