We have led a large number of public M&A, including large and complex transactions involving both national and international public companies. Our typical public M&A assignments cover public to private transactions, public tender offers and mandatory redemption offers, mergers, de-mergers and restructurings involving listed companies, acquisitions and divestments of significant share stakes in listed companies, business acquisitions and divestments involving listed companies, as well as defence strategies against hostile take-over bids.
Public to Private (P2P)
We bring to private equity investors and listed companies a unique expertise to support them when dealing with public to private situations, advising private equity investors in their acquisition approaches to listed companies, or listed companies in the search for private equity sponsors able to conduct such complex transactions.

Corporate Takeover Defence
Bryan, Garnier & Co’s investment banking team has built a strong record in assisting clients who have received hostile takeover bids, in order either to fight off the bid and remain independent or negotiate a transaction that maximizes shareholder value.
