Brachers  is highlighted for combining efficiency with 'good knowledge of a wide variety of sectors and strength across the team'. Led by James Bullock, the team acted on a number of MBOs, including assisting the management team on the MBO of UK Medical from US-based Becton Dickinson, a matter that was complicated due to ongoing services, supply and distribution agreements and the negotiation of a share sale agreement. In other recent work, the group handled private equity acquisitions and transactions in the energy sector that were frequently led by Matthew Simmonds  and Erol Huseyin.
