Divestitures and reorganizations
Taking a public company private can be one of the trickiest corporate maneuvers, but the Withers team has the industry knowledge and negotiation skills to guide the process from either side of the acquisition.
We represented GrafTech, listed on the New York Stock Exchange, throughout its acquisition by Canadian firm Brookfield Asset Management, a transaction worth $820 million in total. That included doing IP diligence, negotiating executive compensation issues and subsequently restructuring the business in a way that minimized the global tax footprint of the company.
Withers has also advised hedge fund managers through the demergers of subsidiary operations and helped many non-US clients restructure investments into US entities.
