Allen & Overy has advised a consortium of investors managed by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (Europe) Limited on its EUR 1.8 billion acquisition of a 50.04% stake in Innogy Grid Holding from RWE, making the consortium the sole owner of IGH. Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer advised RWE on the deal.

The acquisition comes less than a month since RWE itself acquired the stake (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on April 9, 2019). Freshfields — working with PRK Partners — advised RWE on that preliminary acquisition as well.

The Allen & Overy team was led by London-based Partner Richard Evans with support from a Prague-based team consisting of Partner Prokop Verner and Counsel Jan Skuhravy, with corporate and due diligence input provided by Associates Jana Chwaszcz and Jakub Cech and financing input provided by Senior Associate Petra Mysakova and Associate Pavel Príhoda.
