Brunswick Group handles LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s $16.2B takeover of Tiffany & Co., a move that strengthens the Paris-based luxury goods company’s watches & jewelry business and bolsters its presence in the US.

LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault called 182-year-old Tiffany a company with an “unparalleled heritage and unique position in the global jewelry world.”

He said LVMH plans to “develop this jewel” with the same commitment that it applies to its 75 brands (Tag Heuer, Hublot, Bulgari, Hennessy, Dom Perignon, Givenchy, Fendi, Christian Dior and Sephora).

LVMH used Kekst CNC (James Fingeroth, Molly Morse and Anntal Silver) to handle the Oct. 28 announcement that confirmed preliminary takeover discussions with Tiffany.

It turned to Brunswick’s Nik Deogun, Jonathan Doorley and Aurélia de Lapeyrouse for the takeover. 

Sard Verbinnen & Co’s George Sard, Paul Scarpetta, Chris Kittredge and Eve Young represent Tiffany.
