De Brauw acted as lead counsel to Synthon Holding B.V. a leading company in both the biopharmaceutical and generics pharmaceutical business based in Nijmegen, who sold its generics pharmaceutical business, Synthon International Holding B.V. to funds controlled by private equity firm BC Partners LLP.

De Brauw also advised both the Synthon and its Management board on their respective re-investments in the Company post-closing. Synthon will stay involved in the generics pharmaceutical business as a minority shareholder, but the sale brought Synthon to a position where they can focus more on the biopharmaceutical business. Signing of the transaction took place on Sunday 30 June 2019. Both Synthon and the Management team are very happy with the services provided by De Brauw not just on the transaction but also for the personal advice and support given throughout the deal.
