HEWITSONS INSTRUCTED IN CROSS BORDER MERGER

20 August 2015

Hewitsons Cambridge corporate unit has recently been instructed in a cross border merger involving a Belgian and UK company under the Cross Border Merger Regulations 2007. This is based on EU legislation and in the UK involves the preparation of a merger plan which has to be submitted and approved by the High Court. This is the first merger of its kind that the firm has been involved in as the UK has not seen many instances of these regulations in action.
