Mergers & acquisitions

Our investment management team, in conjunction with our corporate team, advises on corporate transactions in the hedge and private equity fund sectors and assists clients in structuring and implementing PIPEs (Private Investment in Public Equity) transactions.

We also have experience advising on mergers, acquisitions and company restructuring in the financial services sector.

We act for a wide range of clients, from start-up ventures in the hedge fund and private equity sectors to family offices and established financial services firms such as stockbrokers and private banks.

Our geographical range is increasingly international – a reflection not only of our physical presence in various countries, but also of the firm’s strengths in advising international clients more generally.
