Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

Mills Oakley has particular expertise in mid-cap transactions; the team’s ‘business acumen and focus on objectives are second to none’. Key figures in the 16-partner team include Daniel Livingston, who ‘works well with other advisers’, is ‘very commercial and always drives the transaction towards signing and completion’; Tim Cox, who is ‘outcome-focused and quick to respond’; and the recommended Gavin Douglas. Livingston advised Bureau Veritas Australia on its acquisition of a 65% equity stake in McKenzie Group Consulting, and Warren Scott assisted Laser Group with a multi-stage pre-transaction restructuring and the equity sale of its Australian business to Belgium-based Belron. The team has seen some growth, with corporate finance lawyer Virginia Waterhouse joining from Russells, Juanita Rayson from the now-defunct DibbsBarker, Iain Laughland from Norton Rose Fulbright, and Simon Panegyres from HopgoodGanim.
