The Burges Salmon team advising on the deal was led by director Tim Roberts and solicitor Elena Kaltsas, both from the firm’s Corporate team, alongside director Amy McVey and senior apprentice solicitor Charlie Morgan from the firm’s Banking and Finance team, senior associate Amanda Leiu in Commercial, associate Pav Jureczko in Tax, and Menna Chmielewski in Employment.
