Mergers & Acquisitions in Australia

Baker & McKenzie's Mergers & Acquisitions Group continues to be involved in significant and high-profile transactions with leading domestic and international clients. We were awarded "Legal Advisor of the Year" at the mergermarket - Financial Times Asia Pacific M&A Awards 2010. 

Our Mergers & Acquisitions Group advises on all aspects of deals, from tax and finance, through to employment, environmental and other regulatory considerations. In addition, we regularly advise on corporate restructurings, joint ventures, employee share option schemes, cross-border acquisitions and foreign investment transactions.

We have acted for both offerors and targets in takeovers of public companies, as well as unit trusts, either through a formal takeover scheme or with the approval of shareholders. The Group's involvement has included strategic planning, preparation of takeover documentation and liaising with regulatory bodies such as ASIC.

Owing to our global connectivity, we are instructed in many cross-border deals which, through our global platform, we are able to smoothly facilitate for our clients. In this regard, we have developed due diligence procedures based on internationally recognised techniques for use in multi-jurisdictional transactions, often involving the sale or purchase of more than one business.

This edition includes coverage of implications for corporate investigations of the DOJ's increasing cooperation with foreign governments, mitigating international joint venture risks, and the launch of "Global Compliance News."
Esin Attorney Partnership authored the Turkey chapter of Getting the Deal Through – Private Equity 2015. The publication covers private equity transactions in 29 jurisdictions. Written by Duygu Turgut and Ali Selim Demirel, the chapter is one of the Firm's three contributions to GTDT 2015, along with country chapters on Arbitration and Investment Treaties.
We examine eight critical areas that comprise a strong compliance program, and share ways we can help create and implement a program or address compliance issues in a timely and cost-effective manner.
