France > Mergers and acquisitions

BDGS Associés leverages a strong track record in high-end public and private M&A, having recently overseen landmark deals within the transport, energy, insurance, financial service and institution, private equity and telecoms fields. The team is co-led by a quartet of Antoine Bonnasse, a specialist in M&A, restructuring and related disputes, Youssef Djehane, Jean-Emmanuel Skovron and Marc Loy; Loy is especially well-regarded for his prowess in transactions involving listed companies or encompassing cross-border elements. Thomas Méli is also among the standout names, largely due to his first-rate capabilities in LBOs, PtoPs and takeovers. François Baylion and Jérôme du Chazaud are emblematic of the team’s promising crop of more junior partners. At senior associate level, Hannah Cobbett is garnering exposure to a wealth of multi-jurisdictional deals, leveraging her dual qualification at the Paris Bar and the Senior Courts of England and Wales.
