Corporate, M&A and Capital Markets
We’re in the business of businesses
Listed or unlisted—you’re on our list. So are financial institutions and private equity funds. We advise companies on capital raising, transactions, corporate governance and commercial contracting. The companies we work with cross a broad spectrum of industries, including mining and commodities, energy, renewable energy, facility services, hotels and hospitality, financial services, engineering, manufacturing, construction, banking, transport and logistics, education, technology, IT, media, life sciences, retail, telecommunications and FMCG. So our knowledge base is especially broad.
We’re an extension of your organisation—institutions, blue chip corporates and private equity funds—in negotiating large, complex acquisitions, divestments and investments. Takeovers, IPOs, placements, rights issues and developing ESOPs are where we excel. We also work with private equity funds to smooth the path to fund establishments, buy outs and exits.
Our expertise in foreign investment law and regulation is favoured by foreign investors looking to acquire an interest in Australian businesses. We help navigate the complex Australian foreign investment regime, which includes seeking FIRB approval if necessary.
We know growth, structure and transparency. So we’re quite often called upon to help with things like board structures and committees, compliance with the listing rules and continuous disclosure, regulator and internal investigations, share trading policies, investor relations, constituent documents and shareholder agreements. We take time to explain directors' and officers' duties, including indemnities and insurance, disclosure of interests, conflicts of interest, related party transactions, as well as remuneration and employee incentives.
We ask and we listen before providing our advice.
