Providing rapidly globalizing member firm clients with one-stop access to high-quality multinational corporate/M&A services in major business centres worldwide was the original reason the World Law Group's founding members came together more than 25 years ago. Today, at least one WLG “Key Contact Partner” at the vast majority of our member firms is a senior corporate partner, deeply experienced in large and mid-sized cross-border transactions involving both publicly listed and private companies.
Invariably, these individuals are also members of the World Law Group’s International Corporate Transactions Group. In addition to their ability to bring just the right people from their own firms’ large corporate practices to work on large, cross-border or multinational deals in any industry, they meet regularly to share experiences with and insights on new legal developments and their impact on structuring various kinds of transactions.
Many members have worked together frequently on complex matters including stock and asset acquisitions, tender offers, mergers, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, spin-offs, recapitalizations, structured auctions and roll-ups. Others bring a special focus on private equity, venture capital, corporate finance, securities law and related fields.
For more than a decade, members of the WLG International Corporate Transactions Group have also worked together on various editions of two top-selling Kluwer Law International titles: International Business Acquisitions: Major Legal Issues and Due Diligence (the 4th edition of which will be published this fall) and The International Securities Law Handbook (the 3rd edition of which will also be published later this year.)
