Lawrence Stephens Law Merger

Steven Bernstein, Senior Director in the Corporate and Commercial department and co-founder of Lawrence Stephens, argues that some companies fare best when owned privately, in Law360.

Steven’s comments were published in Law360, 20 January 2023.

Discussing Seraphine Group PLC’s £15.3M Takeover by Mayfair Equity Partners LLP, Steven commented: “From my perspective, it’s an interesting example that maybe not every business is well suited to be on the public market…

“And then there are some businesses that are just better owned privately, because there’s just a greater degree of flexibility, and you can make quicker decisions without the scrutiny that comes from being in a public space.”
