BCLP recently advised private equity client Tattarang Group, one of Australia’s largest private investment groups, on its acquisition of R.M. Williams, an Australian footwear and clothing company. Tattarang is owned by Andrew and Nicola Forrest. R.M. Williams was previously held by L. Catterton, the private equity arm of French luxury goods group LVMH Moët Hennessy.

Working alongside Australian firm Clayton Utz (a member of the BCLP preferred firm network), BCLP coordinated all aspects of the transaction related to the target group’s international operations in the UK, US, Holland and Singapore.

BCLP’s cross-firm team was led by London Partner Andrew Hart (also the relationship partner) along with Santa Monica Counsel Stefani Thomas, who assisted with US advice, Laura Patao-Caminas (London, Corporate) and Sharonrose Tan (Singapore, Corporate). The team also used BCLP’s preferred firm network, soliciting advice from Florent in the Netherlands. 

The deal has been reported by outlets including The Sydney Morning Herald and Inside Retail.
