Mergers and acquisitions (“M&A ”) are at the core of our practice. We regularly advise a wide range of international corporate clients on cross border and multi-jurisdictional M&A , complex joint ventures, disposals and general commercial and corporate governance issues. Our client-focused M&A work is defined by creativity and a commitment to careful planning and coordination throughout.
We have been adviser of choice on a large number of the more complex public and private company M&A transactions in Hong Kong, particularly on deals involving an international cross-border or significant PRC dimension. We have advised on significant M&A transactions across a broad section of industries, and are particularly experienced in advising on M&A in the mineral and natural resources sector.
We are frequently retained by major domestic and international mineral companies, financial institutions and leading international law firms to provide strategic counsel in M&A transactions. Among other things we advise on share and asset sales and transfers, take-overs, take-over defences, amalgamations and plans of arrangement. Our lawyers combine expert technical advice with a pragmatic and commercial approach.
At Charltons we are committed to helping our clients succeed. We acknowledge that mineral companies, particularly junior and pre-production companies, operate in an environment in which otherwise typical commercial transactions are often complicated by a unique combination of technical, financial and legal challenges.
Charltons is member of a number of international networks of top-tier independent law firms practicing in the world’s leading mining jurisdictions.
