We specialise in share purchases, business acquisitions and joint ventures.  In addition to transactions in the UK, we also advise on transactions with a cross-border element.  If you are looking to buy or sell a company or business, Lewis Townsend will provide you with the top quality advice that you need to achieve your objectives.

We advise clients on a full range of M&A transactions including :

  • Share Sales and Purchases
  • Business Sales and Purchases
  • Due Diligence and Data Rooms
  • Confidentiality Letters and Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Term Sheets and Letters of Intent
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Private Equity and Minority Investments
  • Warrant Instruments
  • Management Buy-outs
  • Mergers
  • Capital Increases

We have experience in numerous industry sectors including media, telecoms, IT, publishing, fashion, insurance, real estate, oil & gas and heavy industry.

Lawyers at Lewis Townsend have been instructed on M&A transactions for major UK and multinational companies throughout the World and have advised in over 70 separate jurisdictions (together with our network of local counsel around the globe).  Those transactions have included deals for Pearson, Royal Sun Alliance, Swiss Re, AT&T, Verizon, Tata, NTT DoCoMo, Sumitomo, Mitsui, Marubeni, Itochu, Japan Railways and INPEX.  Whilst many of the M&A transactions for these clients have had purchase prices of over US$ 1 billion, we are equally comfortable advising on small sales of UK companies/businesses where the purchase price is less than £1 million.  In such cases, we will ensure that our fees are cost effective in the context of the transaction.
