Minter Ellison’s expertise covers the full spectrum of M&A transactions, both in the public markets domain and by private treaty. Our M&A lawyers advise across a range of industries, particularly energy and resources, transport, financial services, technology, media and telecommunications, and health and ageing.
We act for a large and established client base of international and Australian clients in both hostile and recommended public company takeover bids, public-to-private transactions, private treaty trade sales and acquisitions, as well as joint venture arrangements, mergers, privatisations and reconstructions by schemes of arrangement.
Our M&A team is experienced in developing strategy and working closely with our clients’ financial advisers to successfully execute an agreed strategy. As Asia Pacific’s largest law firm, we have the ability to speedily assemble an M&A transaction team with the depth of resources required to implement transactions efficiently, including those with cross border operations.
As well as assisting with clients’ negotiation and execution strategies, we advise on transaction risk identification and allocation.
Our internal structure allows us to bring together expert, integrated M&A teams, including lawyers with applicable industry credentials and legal expertise in competition, tax structuring and acquisition finance, as client and transaction requirements dictate.
Our tax structuring expertise is one of the deepest in our region, and has benefited many of our M&A clients. In competition law, we have leading experts, one of whom has written the leading textbook in the field that is now in its 30th edition.
