Clifford Chance, Slaughters advise on $16.7bn Cadbury bid

September 8, 2009 US food giant Kraft Foods said yesterday that it will pursue a takeover of Cadbury PLC even after the British maker of Trident gum and Dairy Milk chocolate rejected Kraft's first $16.7 billion bid.

Clifford Chance is advising Kraft on the proposed bid, with a team lead by London corporate partner Guy Norman along with partners Rob Crothers in London and Sarah Jones in New York.

Cadbury took longstanding adviser Slaughter and May for advice. Corporate partners Steve Cooke and Tim Boxell are heading Slaughter's team, according to legalweek.
