Merger aims to form a leading infrastructure solutions provider in Australia and worldwide
Piper Alderman has helped Australian engineering consultancy Lindsay Dynan finalise a merger agreement with global engineering consulting business Hatch.
The merger will provide a strong contribution to Hatch’s position as a premier, highly integrated engineering solutions provider across Australia and worldwide, according to Lindsey Dynan.
“Our union will allow us to offer expanded capabilities in rail, tunnelling, aviation, and ports to our client base while connecting them with a global network of professionals who have experience with many unique client challenges,” said Lindsay Dynan executive director Scott Watson.
Partner Lis Boyce led the team on the transaction, with support from associate Egor Serov and law clerk Samiha Asim. They assisted Lindsay Dynan in negotiating and implementing the corporate terms of the transaction and discussing with 30 company shareholders the legal implications of the matter.
Partner Joe Murphy provided advice on the employment aspects of the deal.
“Having worked with Lindsay Dynan for some time as they positioned themselves for a trade sale, it is very gratifying to have supported the firm through this significant project, and exciting to see the strategic potential for both organisations in the combination,” Boyce said.
“As our board planned and executed this transaction, we appreciated Piper Alderman’s strategic support and responsiveness to manage the complexity and ensure that all the elements of the project were delivered in a timely way,” Watson said.
