As we approach our third birthday this month and the Brexit chaos continues, it has led us to reflect upon our international role and Peregrine’s place in the world.
Over the past few weeks, it has been impossible to ignore the Brexit battles. The headlines have been dominated by considerable uncertainty in Westminster and political deals, debates and delays. The underlying philosophy of Brexit may have been to ‘take back control’, but there appears to have been a loss of control as Brexit has revealed a divided country that is fighting with itself, the EU and its international future.
Here at Peregrine, we like to celebrate our international identity. Cross-border deals have been at the heart of our work since day one and we have a deep expertise in assisting with global transactions. We love international work and are always looking for new opportunities to get involved in cross-border and multi-market advice.
Peregrine’s working environment is very diverse, and we have an international team from Australia, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg and Poland.
We are proud to serve clients from all over the world, including Abu Dhabi, Australia, BVI, Cayman Islands, China, Germany, Isle of Man, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia, Singapore and the USA.
Our top five recent international highlights include:
- Acting for Tonik Energy in its recent fundraising activities, including its £10m investment from Japanese multinational firm, Mitsui & Co.
- Looking after Collins Foods Limited, an Australian listed public company, in Europe with its UK management company and portfolio of quick service restaurants across Germany and The Netherlands.
- Advising Ideagen Plc on the £3.5m acquisition of the Irish Software as a Service (SaaS) company, Scannell Solutions.
- Continuing to act for London Kidzania, the UK franchise of a Mexican brand that is one of the fastest growing educational entertainment brands in the world.
- Working with EduReach, the leading international school operator, in opening schools in eight countries across three different continents, including China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Qatar and Thailand.
With Brexit looming, Britain may be looking inwards and retreating from the global landscape, but here at Peregrine, we’re looking outwards to an exciting international future.
