“Our approach to M&A is, at every stage of a transaction, to maximise value for our clients.”


Holding Redlich’s expertise covers the full spectrum of M&A transactions, both in the public markets domain and by private treaty. Our M&A lawyers advise across a range of industries, particularly agribusiness, transport, financial services, technology and media and telecommunications. Our M&A team is experienced in developing strategy and working closely with our clients’ financial advisers, management and internal operations personnel to successfully execute an agreed strategy. Our practitioners have significant experience advising at the board level and an ability to provide swift common sense resolutions to complex issues.  As a national firm, we have resources and skills across Australia with both domestic and cross-border experience. We primarily act for a middle market established client base of international and Australian clients in private treaty trade sales and acquisitions, both hostile and recommended public company takeover bids, public-to-private transactions, as well as joint venture arrangements and mergers.
