Anna has been advising on national and cross-border corporate matters for 15 years, including mergers and acquisitions, group reorganisations, joint ventures and general company constitutional and compliance issues.

Much of Anna’s recent focus has been on assisting clients in planning and implementing large, multi-jurisdiction reorganisations and restructurings, typically involving a combination of share and asset transfers, mergers, demergers, liquidations and balance sheet reconciliations. She has also been actively advising clients on acquisitions and disposals in the manufacturing and dental sectors in particular, including auction sales.

Anna has acted for a wide variety of private companies and individual shareholders on sales and purchases of companies and businesses, including running multiple sale processes in an auction context. Working closely with many DLA offices, relationship firms and accountants across the globe on a daily basis, Anna has developed strong connections. She project manages complex transactions and step-plans, whether that be as part of a business plan strategy, post-acquisition integration, increasing tax and cost savings or general group re-alignment. She has completed both cross-border reorganisations and acquisitions and disposals for clients which include NYSE listed companies and market leaders. Anna also set up and led a cross-office UK team on a large number of dental acquisitions for three of the leading dental practice groups in the UK.

Anna is a member of the DLA Piper healthcare sector group and since returning from maternity leave in April 2019 forms part of the core team driving the DLA Piper industrials sector group.
