Corporate/M&A

Our corporate/M&A team has exceptional transactional skills. We routinely advise on cross border matters, allowing us to have an international reach and work on complex deals.  We played a major role in some of the biggest deals involving Maltese companies over the past years. Our experience in this area is recognised by the foremost legal directories, including Legal 500, IFLR1000, Chambers and Partners.

We are experienced in all aspects of M&A transactions and corporate work, including private and public acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, private equity, exit structures, corporate restructuring, corporate governance, as well as general commercial matters.

We work together across practice areas within our firm, offering consistent and multidisciplinary support to our clients. 

We have the ability to combine cross-border transactional experience with in-depth knowledge of regulated sectors which provides our firm’s clients with a leading edge around the negotiating table.

Our lawyers are individually known for their broad expertise and vast experience in the industries they service, being able to deliver sound and clear advice and undertake even the most demanding of assignments.

We are known by regulators and institutions for being meticulous and thorough, ensuring that our clients’ regulatory approvals are obtained smoothly and that good relations are kept at all times.

We assist clients in understanding multiple jurisdictions in relation to structuring/re-structuring, preparation for an exit in a business or sale and/or regulatory risk analysis. We do this through a combination of our experience in doing so and in reliance on our extensive international networks, both those built by our partners over time and through AllyLaw, the combination of which gives us a truly world-wide reach.
