The corporate team at a Birmingham law firm has advised a developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing on its acquisition of a specialist in the design and manufacture of solid state, high-power microwave and RF amplifiers.

The deal saw SGH Martineau advise Teseq Holding AG on its acquisition of UK-based Milmega Ltd.

It strengthens Teseq’s capabilities in commercial, industrial, automotive, military and communications applications, reinforcing its position as a global player in immunity testing and a supplier of test instrumentation to a wide range of customers.

President of Teseq Johannes Schmid said: “This acquisition is a testament to Teseq’s forward thinking strategy and builds upon the half-century of EMC experience with which we were founded.

“We were impressed by the team at SGH Martineau’s understanding of the commercial issues driving the acquisition, and the sensible and pragmatic advice they offered us was invaluable.”

SGH Martineau corporate partner Rishi Malliwal, who led the team advising Teseq, said: “We were extremely pleased to advise Teseq on this new opportunity to expand its business in the UK.

“Teseq has a strong reputation and vision for success and I’m proud of how our team worked together to deliver the expert service they expect. We are looking forward to continuing our close working relationship with Teseq in the future.”

Mr Malliwal was supported by fellow partners Emma Shipp (corporate) and Oliver Gutman (tax), associates Chandni Ruparelia (property) and Hinal Carson (employment), assistant solicitor Gavin McNaughton (corporate) and Pearse Sheehan (corporate).

Milmega Limited was advised by Grant Thornton and Moore Blatch.
