Mergers and Acquisitions

Ogier's global teams are leading offshore advisers on big-ticket, international M&A transactions. Strong deal flow continues in sectors as diverse as pharmaceuticals, events, hotels and leisure, natural resources and real estate with businesses often operating across international borders and timezones.

Ogier is a leader on high value complex deals and is able to combine experienced transactional and litigation teams to meet the challenges that significant transactions often present.

With many of our lawyers having significant onshore experience to complement our offshore expertise, we regularly work side-by-side with leading onshore advisers.

Ogier also has the strength in depth to deal with a number of complex, large scale transactions at one time.

Our cross-jurisdictional team has been busy advising not just across a range of asset classes, but also across offshore jurisdictions, with significant deals being done by our BVI, Cayman, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg teams.

Deal volume has been driven by a wide range of positive factors including private equity investors with significant reserves looking to exploit economic buoyancy, continued growth in emerging and developing economies notably in Asia and Africa, some investors taking advantage of value arising from currency movements, and the growth factor presented by innovation in technology.

Ogier was in the top ten legal advisers to mergers and acquisitions in Central and Eastern Europe in 2019, the only offshore firm to feature in the CEE list. Ogier's recent work in the region includes large public company M&A, a number of energy financings and infra-projects work.
