Ever wondered what a lawyer to other lawyers actually does?
In this piece from a leading legal sector publisher, Legal Futures, they report on the cross border merger of one of our law firm clients. Legal Futures are a key legal press contact and have picked up on the deal because it was the first of its kind in the UK market. As solicitors we undertake ground-breaking deals – it’s what we do. We advised on the merger, worked with the regulators to make the deal happen and secured the exemption necessary from professional rules to ensure the insurance regime operated by one regulator did not prevent the deal. Bennett Briegal Partner Mark Briegal advised on the corporate aspects and Paul Bennett advised on the regulatory and legal regulation aspects. Mark had to build a relationship with KMPG Legal on the corporate aspects. The SRA and IPReg were both helpful and engaged with me to ensure the challenges were addressed by them and dealt with appropriately – credit goes to both regulators for working with us to get this deal done. https://lnkd.in/eekVYJB
