Mourant Ozannes has advised Total in connection with the Jersey aspects of the sale of its marketing assets in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man to Rontec Investments LLP.

Jersey Managing Associate Matthew Shaxson and Guernsey Partner Andrew Walters led the teams comprising corporate, property and employment specialists in Jersey and Guernsey respectively.

Total was advised on English law matters by SNR Denton.

The transaction, which is conditional and is expected to complete later this year, further shows Mourant Ozannes' ability to advise on complex cross-island mergers and acquisitions involving a broad range of disciplines, as was evident when Mourant Ozannes recently acted for Kleinwort Benson in connection with its acquisition of Close offshore.
