Sean Geraghty - Dechert LLP

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

Dechert LLP's corporate M&A department predominantly handles cross-border transactions for domestic and international clients in the upper and mid-market spaces. With a substantial offering also in the US, the City team, led by' formidable advocate' Douglas Getter, is able to provide high-quality advice on transatlantic deals, particularly in the financial services, life sciences, energy and TMT sectors. In addition, the firm benefits from a strong presence in emerging markets. New York-qualified Getter often leads on transatlantic matters, including M&A transactions, public offerings and joint ventures, acting for both public and private companies. The team has seen some change, with two partners leaving for the London arm of Goodwin - Graham Defries and Andrew Harrow - and Robert Darwin joining from Hogan Lovells International LLP . Darwin brings additional strength to the firm's life sciences group as well as private equity experience. Sean Geraghty is also recommended, as is Ross Allardice for private equity work.
