Mergers and Acquisitions

Recognized for our mix of M&A and corporate finance expertise throughout Africa, we have successfully achieved a position of market leadership. We support buyers and sellers at all stages of transactions – from bid preparation and submission to negotiation, sign-off and close. We advise on the full range of deal structures from public takeovers/tender offers through to divestments, auctions, take privates and demergers.

Our track record in M&A, expertise and local knowledge in most AFTca countries throughout Africa also ensures that we deliver cost-effective, high quality legal advice. Our close-knit team of lawyers across Africa employs a common approach, which means we can handle cross-border deals effectively. We work hard at building relationships and our clients tell us that we deliver a level of service that very few firms operating within the African space can match.

Our sector teams work closely across our network of offices to provide clients with an unrivalled, seamless service. Strong sector knowledge built up from years of working with clients across all sectors, allows us to bring a strategic approach to our work, a deep understanding of industry issues and ensures we provide an efficient approach to due diligence.

Having started from humble beginnings as a family-owned Accra, Ghana law firm, we have over the last ten years expanded our network and presence in Sierra-Leone, South Africa, Egypt, Angola and Nigeria to provide unparalleled legal and consultancy services in order to meet our international clients needs.
