Representative Matters

Jennifer represented long-term firm clients in the sale of a very successful family business to a large international firms. This multi-faceted transaction involved a significant pre-sale reorganization followed by the sale of assets in various jurisdictions including Canada, the United States, Barbados and the United Kingdom.

One of the clients’ top priorities was to complete this transaction within an extremely tight timeframe, so a full team was assembled to work toward this goal. Jennifer negotiated complex, multi-party, multi-jurisdiction purchase documents while working with the team in various jurisdictions as well as with the purchaser’s legal team. As a result, the transaction was completed in about three weeks.
