"A longstanding client, Cooke Aquaculture, came to us to lead its acquisition of Wanchese Fish Company, one of the world's largest producers of sea scallops. Wanchese has significant operations in Virginia and North Carolina, important scallop fisheries in Argentina, and crucial sales offices in France.
Leading the Cooke legal team on this complex acquisition and related financing, we brought in fellow TAGLaw members Williams Mullen (North Carolina & Virginia, USA), Brons y Salas (Argentina), and Triplet (Lille, France).
The result was a seamless integration of TAGLaw firms working together as a single team. It was essential to be able to bring this expertise to the client and this complex transaction. The high degree of quality of service, professionalism and personal dedication of the lawyers involved was impressive, to us and to our client. This is exactly the way these cross-jurisdiction affiliations are supposed to work. We are proud to be affiliated with TAGLaw and this experience reinforces our commitment to the group."
