Mergers and acquisitions

Within: Mergers and acquisitions

Predestined for cross-border transactions, Baker McKenzie gained noticeably visibility in the market since the arrival of Matthieu Grollemund from Dechert LLP in 2017. Instructions mainly come from the TMT, consumer goods and retail, and healthcare and financial services sectors, but the team's track record displays even broader sector expertise. In a recent healthcare highlight, Stéphane Davin, who heads the practice alongside Grollemund, recently joined forces with the Chicago-based Mike DeFranco to assist Servier with its $2.4bn acquisition of Shire's global oncology business. Alyssa Auberger, Marie-Françoise Bréchignac and Alain Sauty de Chalon are also recommended. Aurélie Goville made partner and Antoine Caillard was promoted to senior counsel. Abbott Laboratories, Crédit Agricole and EDF are also clients.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
