Mergers & Acquisitions

MF&G assists its local and international clients with takeovers—offering key advice on structures and logistics connected to these mergers and acquisitions.

This practice team acts in major mergers under the Companies Act and companies listed on the Jamaican Stock Exchange. We work with both vendors and purchasers of companies, with respect to share and asset acquisition.

We also assist with worldwide sales of assets and shares of multinational companies that are both listed and unlisted in Jamaica. We frequently act for financiers both in Jamaica and internationally.

Throughout merger and acquisition transactions, the team guides its clients through issues of corporate structure, tax, securities law, stock exchange rules, environmental liability, pensions and employment.

For purchasers, we also provide guidance through due diligence investigations that relate to assigning contracts, transfers of rights—and an analysis of liabilities and assets, including real estate.
