Matheson advises on cross-border private equity buyout
Matheson has advised a UK-based private equity fund on its acquisition of an Irish logistics business.
STAR Capital Partners has acquired GSLS from its majority owner, Carlyle Cardinal Ireland.
GSLS provides business critical secure logistics services to Irish banks, other financial institutions, and customers in the retail and hospitality sector, with offices in Dublin and Limerick and more than 200 employees.
Brian McCloskey, corporate M&A partner at Matheson, said: “We are delighted to have had a cross departmental team work closely with the team at STAR in successfully closing this transaction.
“It is another great example of Matheson’s private equity expertise. Since 2010, we have advised on more private equity buyouts than any other Irish law firm.”
