This article reports that the law firm Ashurst has reaffirmed its position as Apax's adviser of choice by acting for the private equity house on its bid for Woolworths PLC. The firm has advised Apax on the bulk of its deals since winning the role of lead adviser on Apax's panel last June, but this is one of the first deals to make it into the public domain following a string of failed bids. On the other side is Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, which was also appointed to the Apax panel last June. Freshfields corporate partners Edward Braham and Mark Trapnell are advising long-term client Woolworths.
