01 June 2020
The A&O team worked closely with SIG General Counsel Andrew Watkins and was led by Corporate partners Richard Browne and Annabelle Croker with support from associates Aoife Mac Dermott, Harriet Boyle and Maria John. Partner Alastair Balfour advised on antitrust aspects of the deal.
Commenting on the transaction, Richard Browne said: “This is a significant transaction for SIG that comes at a critical time for the company and we were very happy to bring our expertise to bear on it. While PIPE deals remain relatively rare in the UK, this transaction shows that under certain conditions they can be achieved.”
