What the team is known for

Boutique corporate practice advising both local and foreign clients on corporate transactions and private equity investments. Regularly handles privatisations, share buy-backs and subscription agreements, corporate restructurings and the sale and acquisition of various assets for clients in the real estate, financial services and pharmaceutical sectors.

Strengths

"They did as good a job as they could possibly do," according to a client, who explains: "We didn’t have to keep briefing and re-briefing as both partners intimately knew the business, the transaction and the nature of the relationship between the parties involved."

Another source highlights the high level of trust they place in the team: "I would use them for important work. When we do a bigger transaction we look to Charltons for it."

Notable practitioners

Clinton Morrow enters the rankings after demonstrating significant private and public M&A expertise. He is endorsed by one impressed client, who notes: "Clinton was leading the charge. He is a very good technical lawyer, has a relaxed style and can also take the emotion out of deals, and move on."

Julia Charlton continues to rise in the rankings, after getting praise from various sources as a "super bright," "very analytical"  and "excellent lawyer." Her wide-ranging corporate and finance practice spans M&A, private equity and capital market transactions. "Julia has a forensic brain and she's able to go straight to the precise issue during a confusing situation. She can do what a lot of lawyers can’t do," adds an approving source.
