Dowd and Co

Corporate/M&A

Our corporate team is led by lawyers who have practised in the largest firms in Australia and undertaken general counsel and company secretary roles in some of Australia’s largest commercial enterprises. This experience and dedication is applied to bring our clients’ corporate projects to a successful conclusion. Several of our larger corporate clients regard us as an extension of their internal legal team and regularly engage us to undertake general corporate work of varying complexity.

Our deep understanding of relevant legislation and our front line experience allows us to develop effective strategies to ensure negotiations with regulatory bodies such as the ASX, ASIC and ACCC result in a favourable outcome. We have advised the owners of major local and international brands on domestic and offshore issues. We have acted in acquisition and sale transactions for some of Australia’s most well-known retailers in addition to representing their interests in proceedings brought by the ACCC in relation to alleged anti-competitive conduct.

Our clients rely upon us for our broad experience in assisting them to design and implement innovative structuring solutions for their joint ventures, sales, acquisitions and restructures. We enjoy the close working relationships we have developed with the senior management and boards of our clients. We encourage our clients to leverage off these relationships when they engage us to advise on governance, regulatory and commercial risk issues to ensure all stakeholders’ interests are met as an outcome.

In a nutshell, we exist to meet the corporate needs of our clients and thrive on the challenges this presents.
