Our Corporate/M&A team has extensive experience on the full range of corporate finance transactions including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, corporate restructuring, joint ventures, MBO’s and Black Economic Empowerment.
Given our involvement in significant corporate M&A, we have developed extensive expertise in due diligence investigations in the fields of commercial law, employment law, environmental law and regulatory. We work independently or as part of a multidisciplinary team together with our Corporate Finance and M&A Tax colleagues or with external service providers appointed by our clients.
In our view, the signature of the transaction agreements is but the first step to ensuring that a merger transaction is sustainable and delivers the desired outcomes. Hence we partner with our client in providing world class transaction project management, and post merger integration services together with our Consulting S&I colleagues.
We also provide advice regarding the structuring of private equity transactions from initial capitalisation through to exit strategies. The success of private equity transactions lies in their structure, funding and deal execution. Working together with our Corporate Finance, M&A Tax and Consulting S&I that make up a dedicated Private Equity Group, we are able to successfully advise on the structuring of private equity funds and transactions.
