Baker McKenzie Switzerland advised Lalique Group SA ("Lalique") on the acquisition of a 75% stake in the preeminent wine estate Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey for a purchase price of EUR 18 million. With this acquisition, Lalique will further develop synergies with the crystal and hospitality business. Meanwhile, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey will benefit from increased visibility and will be able to raise its profile with existing and new target groups.
Lalique is a niche player in the creation, development, marketing and global distribution of luxury goods — ranging from perfumes and cosmetics to crystals, jewelry, high-end furniture and lifestyle accessories. The group is also active in the fields of art, gastronomy and hospitality, as well as single malt whiskey. The company is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, and has around 700 employees.
Baker McKenzie advised Lalique on all legal aspects of the deal.
