Case Study: International Natural Resources Company Receives Legal Support and Reduces Legal Fees on Key M&A Transaction

  • Energy


International Natural Resources Company



Client need

The client required assistance with a key M&A transaction, a multijurisdictional US $2.5+ billion acquisition. 

Client solution

Simplex, an independent law firm affiliated with Epiq, supported the client throughout the due diligence process, antitrust preparation, financing, and other aspects of the acquisition. Simplex assisted the client with an antitrust compliance requirement involving liquidating a significant asset. The transaction necessitated additional lawyers to support the client and ensure uninterrupted operations. Simplex continues to support the client post-transaction, as the organisation adjusts to the new landscape.

Why Epiq

Simplex has a long-standing relationship with the client. The relationship started with a secondment on a short-term basis to assist with overflow legal work. It evolved into an ongoing relationship consisting of four lawyers assisting the legal team on a major transaction.
