Mergers & Acquisitions

​The level of experience of our team enables us to structure, negotiate and bring a deal to execution seamlessly and efficiently from a deal's early stages to closing. We have acted on the most significant Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transactions across Sub-Saharan Africa and are known for our ability to provide both public and private clients with sophisticated but innovative and commercially-minded advice on structuring, negotiating, documenting and implementing local and multi-jurisdictional M&A transactions, as well as managing legal risk.

Our M&A offering is market-leading and our firm is home to some of the highest ranked M&A experts in South Africa. Given the significant increase in M&A activity related to valuable "intangible" assets such as intellectual property (IP) in the form of brands, patents and technology – our clients find real value in our leading commercial IP and technology offerings. Also with technology deals, we have expertise in addressing cyber risks that can threaten deal success.

We have extensive experience in acting on behalf of bidders, targets and financial advisers on both recommended and hostile transactions. We act for clients in various capacities including as purchasers, sellers, directors, shareholders and financiers. We always take our client's risk profile into consideration to ensure that we achieve the best results for them. We work closely with regulators and understand how they operate; this allows us to help our clients to bring transactions to a successful close as timeously as possible.

We cover the full spectrum of corporate transactions, including:
