Nick Gibbon - DAC Beachcroft
Nick Gibbon

Nick Gibbon is a corporate partner in our London office. He has more than 30 years' experience spanning mergers, acquisitions, disposals, IPOs (and other fundraisings), joint ventures (and other co-investment arrangements) and reorganisations, as well as other corporate work.

He has advised companies operating in a variety of sectors and at all stages of their corporate lives: from start-up, through fundraisings and M&A activity, to trading on public markets and (in some cases) being taken over or reconstructed.

He obtained a First in Law at Cambridge University and was a partner in a magic circle firm before joining DAC Beachcroft. At both firms, much of his work has been in regulated sectors and cross-border. Qualified in Hong Kong as well as England, he has led the legal advice on international transactions involving North America, Asia and Western Europe in particular.

Nick is a member of Practical Law's corporate consultation board and of the QCA's corporate governance experts group. He co-authored the UK chapter of Practical Law's multi-jurisdictional guide to corporate governance and directors' duties and is an IBA member.

Recent transactions on which Nick has led the advice include:

  • The acquisition of an international consumer products business by a publicly-traded group and the related fundraising by way of placing;
  • Cross-border acquisitions and disposals of asset management, foreign exchange and technology businesses;
  • The MBO of an international financial services group by a US private equity-backed vehicle;
  • The sale of a retail and leisure group to a private equity-backed vehicle and related co-investment arrangements;
  • The IPO of an investment group, and its subsequent secondary fundraisings, including one by way of crowdfunding;
  • International insurance groups' acquisitions and sales of broking, technology and health insurance businesses;
  • The reorganisation and demerger of a wealth management group's institutional and private client businesses;
  • Cross-border acquisitions of leisure groups;
  • Secondary fundraisings by publicly-traded technology and construction groups;
  • Takeover Code offers for a publishing group and for a financial services group.

Nick qualified in 1988 and joined DAC Beachcroft in 2006.
