“What really makes this deal stand-out are the circumstances under which it was completed,” said Ian Mace, partner, Stephenson Harwood. “Due to the various restrictions imposed by governments across the globe as they respond to the coronavirus pandemic, all the parties involved were working remotely throughout almost the full period of the transaction. It’s a testament to the innovative approaches, determination and commitment of all involved that this deal completed in a relatively short timeframe and under such unusual circumstances.”
