Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

Work Department

Antony is a Partner in our Corporate group and focuses on global M&A and structuring projects for major corporates, often for businesses in the Industrials and/or Technology sectors and increasingly the convergence of those two sectors. Antony’s 20 year M&A experience is particularly centred on undertaking rest-of-world mandates for US and European headquartered businesses - doing deals for those companies all over the world and often on a cross-border basis to a US-centric standard, as regards terms and service. On the Industrials side, Antony typically leads on major cross-border acquisitions and disposals, often purchasing complimentary global businesses or carving-out divisions for sale or listing, and project managing these complex transactions. Increasingly Antony has supported major listed Industrials businesses with acquiring technology start-ups and SMEs as part of the global drive towards digitisation. Antony’s Technology deals are often helping founder entrepreneurs realise their investment or helping major corporates buy-up interesting technology. In both contexts, Antony supports clients with bridging cultural and organisational-scale gaps to ensure deals get done to the right standard and Antony benefits from seeing both sides of the spectrum.
