High-profile transaction aims to accelerate the expansion of the leading global pharmaceuticals company.

Latham & Watkins has advised CVC Capital Partners and Theramex, the leading global specialty pharmaceuticals company focused on women’s health, on the sale of Theramex to global investment firms PAI Partners and Carlyle.

Advice was also provided on regulatory matters by Paris partner Eveline Van Keymeulen, with associate Jeanne Fabre; on data and technology transactions matters by London partner Gail Crawford, with New York counsel Eliot Choy, and London associates Mihail Krepchev and Lorenzo Meusburger; and on finance matters by London partner Fergus O’Domhnaill, with associate Robert Lowe.
