With our strong commercial focus and relentless commitment to execution, our M&A and capital markets team has an outstanding track record of successfully advising on significant strategic transactions.

Commercial transactions demand pragmatic and robust advice with a detailed understanding of the sector-specific issues required to close a deal. We work closely with our clients on all transaction types such as private and public mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings, joint ventures, foreign investments, taxation and competition law.

We are a market leader in M&A transactions with a team experienced at advising boards of directors, commercial and legal teams, in both friendly and hostile situations, on strategic issues, documentation for takeovers and takeover defences, schemes of arrangement and due diligence.

We assist our clients to confidently execute transactions across all industries including healthcare, consumer, industrial, agribusiness, energy and natural resources, property, infrastructure, technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) and financial services.

We regularly work with international investors including institutional and private equity investors seeking M&A mandates in Australia, and we are particularly active in advising US, Chinese and Japanese entities.

Raising capital or seeking alternative forms of finance can be challenging, particularly as global markets continue to experience high levels of volatility. We are a leading adviser on financings across a diverse range of sectors, advising domestic and international investors seeking to list or raise capital in the Australian equity markets. We act for clients on equity, debt equity-linked, hybrid, asset-backed, credit-linked and derivatives transactions.
