Private M&A

Our lawyers are market leaders in their fields, combining extensive deal experience across all sectors with a deep understanding of the specialist issues that can arise on transactions; from tax structuring to pre-sale organisations, managing litigation risk to seeking regulatory consents, and any other issues that can arise in private M&A.

Our corporate team is used to dealing with complex transactions - we know that no two deals are the same. 

Our experience in acting for buyers and sellers, combined with a commercial based approach, enables us to execute deals seamlessly and efficiently for our clients. Our clients value our ability to understand both sides of the deal and tailor the legal documents accordingly.

We also recognise the changing needs of the market and apply the latest technology to ensure that we deliver our work in the most efficient, advanced and cost effective manner for our clients.

Internationally, we have a proven reputation for providing innovative solutions and pioneering deal structures to global clients either in the context of Irish targets or as part of broader cross-border deals with Irish assets.

Our domestic M&A expertise spans all sectors in the Irish market, from the most complex, high profile to the everyday. We act on both large and small transactions for sellers, buyers and investors providing technical and strategic advice on issues relating to the life cycles of all types of transactions.

Our team has a reputation for providing innovative solutions and pioneering deal structures to global clients.
