Nick Cline - Latham & Watkins

Within: M&A: upper mid-market and premium deals, £500m+

Latham & Watkins handles corporate, transactional and advisory work for corporates, private equity sponsors, funds and investment banks. The US-firm acts for a large number of multi-jurisdictional clients, with a particular focus on the US-UK pipeline, advising on both inbound and outbound investment. The firm frequently acts opposite Magic Circle and Silver Circle firms, as was the case when advising JP Morgan as financial sponsor to Takeda Pharmaceuticals on its acquisition of Shire. The matter was led by Richard Butterwick, who also advised GVC Holdings in connection with the acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral. Farah O’Brien specialises in cross-border private M&A, and has a strong track record in joint ventures and corporate restructurings. The 'oustanding' Ed Barnett has extensive experience advising international companies on cross-border M&A transactions, and works with a number of high-profile clients across key sectors. The practice is led by Nick Cline and Robbie McLaren, and benefited from the arrivals of Brendan Moylan from Clifford Chance LLP and Neil Ferguson from Jones Day, specialists in infrastructure and real estate transactions respectively.
