Mergers and Acquisitions

Fox Williams has extensive experience of advising UK and overseas clients on all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, ranging from complex cross-border acquisitions and disposals to smaller UK private company deals. We advise buyers, sellers and financial advisers on both public and private mergers and acquisitions. Fox Williams is recognised as having a high quality M&A practice, which is a central part of the firm’s practice. Our experience includes:

  • public company takeover bids and responses;
  • private company acquisitions and disposals; 
  • joint ventures; 
  • reorganisations including schemes of arrangement;
  • venture capital and private equity;
  • management buyouts; and 
  • share buybacks and capital reductions.

On cross border transactions we work closely with chosen leading local counsel to provide the best advice and service to our clients. For each transaction we are able to select the right firms to deliver the best service.

To support our clients on M&A transactions, we combine our transactional skills with specialist expertise across a range of disciplines, including employment, tax and incentives, financial services, regulatory, real estate, intellectual property and commercial. We understand the need to provide expert advice effectively and expeditiously given the often rapid pace of transactions. Our sector teams work closely with our transaction lawyers to provide clients with a seamless service. Strong sector knowledge, built up from many years of working with clients across our sectors, allows us to bring a strategic approach to our work and a thorough understanding of industry issues.

We pride ourselves on maintaining long term, successful relationships with our clients. We invest time in our clients by understanding their objectives and business and what is required from their legal advisers, helping us to provide tailored advice adding value to our clients.

We offer strong team work and efficient working practices enabling us to manage our transactions effectively, whilst offering a partner and senior lawyer led service on all transactions.
