A cross departmental G+T team worked alongside longstanding client Liverpool Partners in connection with the restructuring, refinancing and subsequent acquisition by Orro Group of e-Secure.
Orro Group is Australia’s leading platform-enabled secure network and digital infrastructure provider. The acquisition of e-Secure adds new security consulting, assurance and managed detection, and response capabilities to Orro Group’s existing security cloud and IT services capabilities.
The G+T team was led by Corporate Advisory partner Adam Laura with support from consultant Michael McDonald and lawyers Jessica Liang, Jackson Kang and Srivatsav Moorthy. The debt financing aspect of the deal was led by Banking + Projects partner Gail Christopher and was supported by lawyers Michael Spurritt and graduate Ziggy Liszukiewicz.
Adam and Gail said, "We are delighted to have provided support to our long-time client Liverpool Partners on this transaction, which further strengthens Orro’s world class cyber capability."

G+T’s Corporate Advisory team is ranked Band 1 ranking by Chambers, Legal 500 and IFLR1000 in Corporate/M&A and Private Equity. The team was recently named ‘Law Firm of the Year’ in Corporate Law by Best Lawyers 2021.
