M&A

Our M&A transactional tax practice advises on the full range of M&A transactions.

This includes advising on the tax and structuring elements of:

  • Private M&A: acting for corporate groups, institutions, investment funds, partnerships and individuals on sales, purchases and associated transactions;
  • Public M&A, including IPOs and pre-IPO reorganisations;
  • Equity capital markets work, including IPOs and equity fund raises; and
  • Demergers, returns of capital and restructurings.

Typically we work alongside our corporate and M&A team to deliver both the corporate and tax elements of the transaction. We also offer a standalone M&A tax advisory service for clients with existing corporate counsel, and have extensive experience working alongside other corporate advisers. We have particular expertise advising on M&A transaction in the financial services space. Building on our wider investment management tax experience.
