At DWF, the corporate team handles a mix of domestic and cross-border M&A and equity capital markets work. Lester Wilson leads the group and advises on fundraisings, takeovers and large disposals for clients including SMEs and national businesses. Jon Marriott is singled out by clients for his ‘great balance of detail with commercial acumen’, and solicitor Amelia Mackie focuses on takeovers and acquisitions. The team has been strengthened with the arrival of partners Jonathan Procter and Wendy Harrison from DLA Piper, who bring decades of expertise across international acquisition work and equity capital markets issues.
