We have led many public M&As, including large and complex transactions involving both national and international public companies. Our public M&A assignments cover a wide range of deals: 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; and defence strategies against hostile take-over bids.
Public to Private (P2P)
We bring unique expertise to support private equity investors and listed companies when dealing with public-to-private situations. We advise private equity investors on their acquisition approaches to listed companies, or help listed companies find private equity sponsors able to conduct such complex transactions.

Corporate Takeover Defense
