This complex transaction required the involvement of an experienced cross-jurisdictional and cross-practice team of Clifford Chance lawyers, based across the Firm's international network of offices, including New York, Washington D.C., London, Dubai, Sydney, and the AS&H team based in Riyadh.
The AS&H team was led by partner Majid Al-Sheikh, Head of Corporate, who was supported by Rizwan Butt and Abdullah Al-Humaidan. The Clifford Chance team was co-led by partner Sarah Jones and Edmund Boyo who were supported by Yeon Yoon, Katherine Chang and Eugene Hwang and Philip Wagman (partner) and Lauren Clarke in Clifford Chance M&A and Tax teams in the US respectively as well as our lawyers in Amsterdam, Australia and London.
Majid Al-Sheikh, who led the AS&H team, added: "We are delighted to have worked with Cristal on this landmark transaction. This work reflects the strength of our M&A practice in Saudi Arabia. We were able to effectively deal with numerous complex issues that arose during this transaction across various fields including corporate, antitrust, labour and regulatory matters."
Sarah Jones who co-led the Clifford Chance team, commented: "We are proud to have advised Cristal on this transformational transaction for Cristal and the petrochemicals sector in the Kingdom. Given the strength and depth of our global network, together with our renowned capabilities in Saudi Arabia through AS&H, Clifford Chance was ideally placed to provide Cristal with seamless advice on both the international and Saudi aspects of the transaction.”
