Mergers & Acquisitions

What our corporate lawyers do

What they say

"I founded Brightwave and it was difficult to know who I should entrust with the sale, especially when it was first for me. Jonathan and the team invested time with us before the deal to help us plan, which was essential in order that we could deliver a complex deal in a very short timeframe. The DMH Stallard team found ways to complete and secure our money before the long [Christmas] holiday, when at one stage it looked unlikely. If I was making a recommendation to someone else in my position I would say to select experienced lawyers, who are locally based and with a strength in depth to call on when needed."

Charles Gould, Brightwave Group

We advise companies and institutions on every aspect of M&A ranging from heads of terms and the sale and acquisition of owner managed businesses, through to mergers and demergers, and complex international securities transactions.

Our partners also excel at managing transactions to a successful conclusion, and we have developed unique business tools to help us preserve the quality of our advice whilst delivering projects to budget.
