CITIGATE DEWE ROGERSON

TMX offer: London Stock Exchange
TMX offer: London Stock Exchange

Global CEO Peter Chadlington, non-executive chairman
Number of offices 14
Key clients London Stock Exchange, Qatar Financial Centre Authority, Investec

Despite the uncertain financial market, Citigate Dewe Rogerson's London office has been busy. Among others, it advised ABB on its £1bn takeover of Baldor, London Stock Exchange Group on its high profile offer for Toronto-based TMX and US-based Colfax on its $2.4bn takeover of Charter International.

CDR in London is looking to gain market share in major shareholder activism projects, representing, for example, airline entrepreneur Stelios in his ongoing negotiations with easyJet.

The agency built on its presence in emerging markets across the Gulf, Russia and Eastern Europe. Its Doha office experienced rapid growth, advising clients such as industrial conglomerate Aamal on its proposed London listing, and the Qatar Financial Centre Authority on its global comms and positioning.

But Citigate saw a like-for-like revenue decline of 2.5 per cent during the first half of the year, blamed on 'a subdued IPO and M&A market'.

Former CEO Jonathan Clare, corporate MD Deborah Saw and MD of public affairs Simon Nayyar have all left Citigate's UK office. It has also lost key clients G4S and TalkTalk.
