“The Mergers & Acquisitions legal team at Varner & Brandt were pivotal in helping us negotiate and close a complex and critical deal. Their approach was very commercially minded and their detailed knowledge and perspective of the retail and manufacturing sectors ensured all parties were happy with the outcome. The international nature of our deal added to its complexity, and Varner and Brandt managed this element particularly well”.
