Anthony Shatz

Partner

I am a corporate partner with specialist expertise in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and investment funds.

About

I am a partner in Fladgate’s corporate team. I specialise in M&A, Joint Ventures and Investment Funds.

I like to provide clear commercial advice to clients on transactions that are often complex, multi-faceted or cross-jurisdictional. I approach deals by thinking commercially, anticipating issues and solving problems, and I really enjoy working on complex deals with fast moving sophisticated clients.

Legal500 has recommended me on several occasions. They have referred to me a "quick thinker with very good people skills" and as someone who has "an exceptional understanding of the nuances of transactions".

I have written or maintain various publications, including:

• Fladgate’s Guide to “Doing Business in the UK”;

• Fladgate’s M&A Tracker;

• BVCA’s Guides to Real Estate Funds and Fund Restructurings;

• Practical Law's Note on Real Estate Joint Ventures;

• Mondaq’s Comparative Guide to M&A,

all of which are available on request.

I live in London with my wife and two children. Outside of work, I like to cook and compete in triathlons (but only to a very amateur standard!).
