The global consumer goods giant is a long-standing client of the national firm
The global consumer goods giant, a long-standing client of the national firm, acquired the maker of premium ice cream and frozen desserts, for an undisclosed sum.
“We value our ongoing relationship with Unilever and enjoy working with its legal and commercial teams across a range of practice areas,” said Andrew Williams, who led the JWS team that acted on the deal.
JWS fielded a team of lawyers from its corporate, competition, tax, property, employment, and intellectual property practices for the acquisition.
The firm, which acts for both domestic and international clients on deals and disputes in Australia and beyond, recently acted for Natixis in its acquisition of a majority stake in Investors Mutual Limited. It also recently worked with the South Australian government on the state’s $520m energy plan.
