Skadden represented Access Industries, Inc. and Renova Holding Ltd. on a US$3.75 ($5.2) billion “monetisation” of their receivable of shares in BP plc. In August 2003, Access and Renova merged their oil and gas assets in Russia and the Ukraine with those of BP, creating a US$14 billion joint venture, TNK-BP, one of Russia’s largest oil and gas companies. The firm said the transaction was the largest investment to date in Russia by an established multinational company.

Freehills managed the due diligence process for the sale, drafted the sale documentation and negotiated the sale for P&O. Freehills’ team was led by Kerry Heilbronn, and included partner Philip Christensen and senior associate Deanna Constable.
