Magic circle trio take roles on Babcock's £1.1bn VT Group bid
A trio of magic circle law firms have won advisory roles relating to Babcock International's £1.1bn unsolicited bid for government support services company VT Group. Clifford Chance (CC), Linklaters and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer have all picked up roles in relation to the approach, which has been rejected by VT. The bid could scupper VT's own £330m attempt to take over infrastructure support services provider Mouchel Group.
