Firms: HSF (Blue Star Group Australia)

Deal: Acquisition of GEON assets

Area: M&A

Value: Undisclosed

Key players: HSF Partner Peter Dunne (pictured) led the acquisition team, supported by Jessica Selby, John Blake and Jennifer Lam. Brisbane partners Peter Smith and Leyton Cronk also provided advice on the acquisition.

Partner Hayley Neilson and Nicholas Carney led the HSF finance team. The employment team was led by Michael Gonski.

Deal significance: The transaction, which was completed on 13 March, involved the acquisition by Blue Star Group Australia of certain assets of GEON, which is presently under receivership.
