Case Study

Pentair merged with a large part of the former Tyco business to form a company with entities in 50 jurisdictions. Following the merger there was a need to standardize two distinct groups of entities. By working with Pentair over a three month period we standardized the names of the entities, the financial year ends and facilitated the changes of board to allow consistency across all jurisdictions.

“The Corporate Secretarial Services team at Eversheds Sutherland has been a critical member of our team as we have worked to integrate a transformational merger transaction.  Their global capabilities and consistent, high quality advice and service have been key factors contributing to our success in that process and we look forward to a long and continuing relationship.” - Jason Stokes, Associate General Counsel, Pentair
