Tim Lewis - Clifford Chance LLP

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

Clifford Chance LLP advises high-profile clients on strategically important, and frequently cross-border, mandates. Under the leadership of Melissa Fogarty and Nigel Wellings, the M&A team regularly handles complex transactions, including joint ventures, mergers and takeovers, both through contested auctions and bilateral purchases. Global head of corporate Guy Norman continues to maintain a strong standing in the M&A market, and predominantly handles non-public domestic and overseas M&A projects for international corporates and sovereign wealth funds. The team's holistic sector approach is evidenced by a number of high-profile mandates, including advising Pfizer on its joint venture with GSK, on which Gareth Camp led the team. Camp also advised The Coca-Cola Company on its high-profile acquisition of Costa. In the consumer retail sector, David Pudge advised Booker Group on its merger with Tesco. Veteran corporate lawyer Tim Lewis has a strong track record in the UK M&A market, and has advised clients alongside Katherine Moir, who works closely with boards and general counsel and has a strong list of high-profile takeovers to her name. Steven Fox regularly handles high-value cross-border transactions, with a list of clients that includes listed corporates, investment banks and financial institutions. Amy Mahon is the only significant departure to note, having moved to Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, while Simon Clinton and David Pearson retired from the partnership this year.
