M&A Team of the Year: Slaughter and May
Slaughter and May’s work advising British Airways (BA) on its merger with Spanish airline Iberia secures it the highly-prized M&A Team of the Year Award. The deal was a complex one, given that it involved two flagship national airlines operating within a highly-regulated sector. It drew on Slaughters’ expertise in corporate, capital markets, regulatory, tax and commercial law. The merger was completed in January 2011 and created a new holding company, International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG). It is one of the world’s largest airlines, and the second-largest in Europe, having a market value £5.3bn at the time of the merger.
