CMS advises WSP Global on its acquisition of BG Bonnard & Gardel

CMS Switzerland has advised WSP Global on its acquisition of the Lausanne-based BG Bonnard & Gardel Holding, one of Switzerland’s leading engineering consulting firms, following the unanimous approval of BG’s shareholders.

BG Consulting Engineers has a strong presence in France and subsidiaries in Italy and Portugal. In line with WSP’s Global Strategic Action Plan, the acquisition of BG reinforces WSP’s foothold in Europe while increasing its Swiss workforce fourfold to over 600 professionals and almost doubling its staff in France. This strategic deal will reinforce WSP’s presence in the region and bolster its expertise in top three markets, including Transportation & Infrastructure, Property & Buildings and Earth & Environment.

The CMS team was led by partner and head of corporate/m&a in Geneva, Pascal Favre (pictured), and comprised Kevin Marcato, Francesca Scalco, Audrey Durand and David Müller. This cross-border transaction also involved CMS teams in France, Italy and Portugal.
