Mergers & Acquisitions

Burlingtons Corporate team is highly experienced in working with our clients’ domestic and international businesses, whether privately or publicly owned, to enable them to achieve their growth ambitions through merger and acquisition.

Our clients range from small UK based organisations to global corporations requiring cross-jurisdictional teams incorporating our associated international law and other professional firms and advisors.

Our Corporate department has substantial capability in identifying risks associated with transactions and we manage that risk in the legal drafting we produce in the requisite transactional documentation.

Our varied expertise combined with extensive sector knowledge enables Burlingtons to provide erudite advice at every stage of the transaction, allowing the client to focus on maintaining ongoing business development rather than being absorbed into the distraction of the transaction.

We work closely with our Taxation team to ensure the business structure surrounding any transaction is appropriate not only for the post completion environment but will provide flexibility for future growth and development of our clients’ businesses.

Our Corporate team therefore has an impressive track record in advising on both private and public mergers and acquisitions where we have acted for sellers, purchasers, targets and advisors.
