Five of our deal advisory partners; Sanjay Thakkar, Ina Kjaer, Jonathan Boyers, Nicola Longfield and Caroline Bott, were interviewed by Financier Worldwide to garner their thoughts on a range of topics related to demergers.

These interviews explored demerger activity in the current market and the fundamental characteristics and potential benefits of a successful demerger.

Our partners also discussed the strategic considerations businesses need to make when evaluating a potential demerger to avoid potential risks; highlighting the rise of shareholder activism and its impact on demerger activity.
