KWM advised Brookfield Business Partners on its proposal to acquire Healthscope, Australia’s second-largest private hospital operator, in a transaction that implies an enterprise value of $5.7 billion.

A large, multi-disciplinary KWM team was engaged on the deal, including members of the firm’s M&A, real estate and banking and finance practices.
