Mergers and Acquisitions

Whether you are planning an acquisition or a sale, entering into a joint venture or considering a corporate restructuring, we understand the commercial sensitivities and the time-critical nature of mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Our clients are diverse and include large, medium-sized and small companies, private equity funds, banks, financial advisers and international onshore law firms. We advise more LSE-listed clients than any other offshore law firm (Corporate Advisers Rankings Guide).

Our specialists have extensive experience in M&A work, including advising on some of the largest and highest profile cross-border M&A transactions as well as a significant number of domestic acquisitions within Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey. Many of our lawyers have come from international onshore firms and this, combined with the scale of our team, means that we can resource each project appropriately and provide an unrivalled level of offshore expertise.

Specialist teams at Carey Olsen support our M&A experts, providing regulatory, tax, employment, pensions, litigation, real estate and intellectual property services. This full service offering enables us to provide a cohesive team that can support you in every aspect of your transaction, from due diligence through to documenting and completing the deal and providing ongoing advisory services.
