Project managing complex transactions
Our experience and capacity to project manage complex transactions meant that we were able to provide a full range of complex legal advice across a number of disciplines for Endless on its latest acquisition of Imtech Suir, the Irish arm of a Dutch engineering firm. The multi-disciplinary team at Walker Morris worked collaboratively to help secure the safety of over 700 jobs. The deal came less than two weeks after Endless completed the acquisition of Imtech’s UK Group, on which the Walker Morris Team also advised.
