ADVANZ PHARMA is a specialty pharmaceutical company headquartered in London, with an operations centre of excellence in Mumbai, commercial affiliates in North America, Europe and Australia, and an established global network of commercial partners throughout the rest of the world. With an agile and experienced team, including direct sales, marketing and medical capability across many of Europe’s major markets, ADVANZ PHARMA supplies, innovates and enhances the critical medicines patients depend on, ensuring continued patient access and improving health outcomes.

The acquisition was implemented by way of a members’ scheme of arrangement under Jersey company law. The scheme of arrangement was sanctioned by the Royal Court of Jersey on 27 May 2021 and was effective from 1 June 2021.

The Appleby team was led by Appleby partner Andrew Weaver and counsel Kevin McQuillan. Dispute resolution partner Jared Dann, senior associates Gemma Whale and Daniel Healy and trainee Angharad Prescott also assisted.

Speaking on the transaction Andrew Weaver commented: “We are very pleased to have worked with the ADVANZ PHARMA team in getting this matter to completion and I am proud of the consistent excellence of the Appleby team throughout. We look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship as legal advisers to the growing business as it takes its next steps under new ownership.”

Robert Sully, General Counsel of ADVANZ PHARMA, commented: “The Appleby team have acted as an extension of our own team and have made themselves available around the clock to guide us through the sale. They have been a pleasure to work with on this landmark transaction.”
