Merger and acquisition legal support

Stay in control throughout the lifecycle of M&A transactions, with global labour and employment law support across any jurisdiction

We support our clients on increasingly complex multinational M&A transactions – both acquisitions and disposals.

We generally connect into the broader transaction legal team, whether in-house or external counsel, to cover labour and employment law issues globally, regionally or in specific jurisdictions – particularly where these are unfamiliar to the team.

We are well accustomed to fast-paced deal environments, where we advise our clients throughout the lifecycle of transactions from heads of terms and binding offers, through to due diligence, transaction documents, employee consultation and post-closing actions.

Our scalable solution delivers high-value transactions effectively and efficiently, whether they encompass single or multiple jurisdictions.

How we help you


We work in a way that suits you, because we can seamlessly plug into your transaction team. We are used to working effectively with HR teams on the ground, to facilitate the broader commercial aspects of the transaction.

Global experience

We have worked on transactions across a vast range of jurisdictions, giving us valuable experience and insights from deal environments which we pass on to you.

Forward-looking support

Our work doesn’t stop when the deal closes. All our services are ready and available in respect of any newly acquired workforce anywhere in the world, including post-transaction harmonising and restructuring projects.


We have developed an internal M&A playbook, along with a suite of template documentation which we believe delivers convenience and cost efficiencies for our clients.


We flex the use of our local counsel to ensure they are the right lawyers for the deal. This means we can have different counsel (at different price points) who work on transactions compared to day-to-day HR matters.


With offices in London and Singapore and our global reach, we work within multiple time zones to ensure the transaction is constantly progressing.
