Claire McDermott, Partner (Aviation & Employment) on the winning Aviation Finance deal said:
“We were delighted to advise Aergo on their acquisition of Seraph Aviation. The transaction was both strategic and historic for Aergo in terms of future growth. The deal required close collaboration between our highly experienced Corporate and Aviation Teams in Flynn O’Driscoll where we are well placed to advise on M&A transactions in this space.”
Speaking about the winning M&A MBO deal, David Ryan, Partner (Corporate & Commercial) said:
“We were delighted to advise the Company’s management team and its new investors as they embark together on the next phase of the journey for CJ Fallon. The transaction required a multi-jurisdictional approach reflective of the group structure of the Company and that of its then US private equity owners Levine Leichtmann. As a firm we were heavily involved in co-ordinating all of the stakeholders to ensure a successful conclusion. The main challenges were the complexity of the private equity backed structure and meeting the requirements of the seller, investors and management alike. It required a joined up and collaborative approach involving foreign counsel.”
