The merger of C.Gars Limited and La Casa Del Tabaco will form a fully integrated cigar and whisky merchant known as Dominique London.
Both the Belgian and English businesses are market-leading premium cigar and whisky merchants, with physical stores and strong online operations selling worldwide. The businesses offer an unrivalled selection of Cuban and New World cigars with multiple profitable touchpoints into the growing luxury cigar market.
The merger involved the sale of C.Gars Limited to new Belgian parent company Dominique London NV, a reorganisation of the Belgian business and a fundraising led by a consortium of UHNWs and family offices across Europe and the Middle East.
Corporate Partner, Daniel Bellau (Picture) led the Edwin Coe team, assisted by Christophe Robert and Charlotte Harding-Carroll (Corporate Associates), Emma Sangeelee (Employment Partner), Nick Phillips (IP Partner).
Dominique London was advised by Deloitte Legal and the investors were advised by Ashurst in England and Belgium and leading Belgian firm Eubelius.
