JWS Consulting is a division of Johnson Winter & Slattery providing commercial consulting services.
We are engaged by major Australian and international corporations as legal counsel on their business activities, disputes and most challenging matters.
Established in 1993 by Tony Johnson, Nigel Winter and Peter Slattery as a boutique corporate firm, JWS grew rapidly to become a leading independent Australian firm.

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) has, like many areas of speciality, a lexicon all of its own. The JWS Private Treaty M&A dictionary provides clear and simple definitions of many commonly used terms in unregulated sale and purchase transactions in Australia and is a useful resource for anyone involved in an M&A transaction, from experienced deal makers to those embarking on their first deal.
