At a time when businesses are scrutinised more than ever before, what does a model corporate citizen look like? How should leaders behave? How can organisations differentiate themselves?

Powerscourt is proud to have supported InPost, the leading e-commerce enablement platform, on its listing on Euronext Amsterdam. The deal valued the company at €8 billion, making it one of the largest ever EMEA Technology IPOs.
Powerscourt supported Hollywood actor Amber Heard during the UK defamation case brought by Johnny Depp against News Group Newspapers Ltd in 2020. Amber was the key witness for NGN in what was dubbed the ‘libel case of the century’. Depp lost his case after Mr Justice Nicol concluded that the blockbuster movie star had committed no fewer than 12 acts of domestic violence against Amber. Powerscourt also acted for Amber during Mr Depp’s appeal, which was rejected.
Powerscourt helped Tidjane Thiam launch Freedom Acquisition I Corp – a new special purchase acquisition company (SPAC ) . We worked on the media positioning of the SPAC and enlisted our partner agency in the US (ICR Inc). With an initial target of $200m, Freedom Acquisition announced the closing of its initial public offering at a value of $345m.
We are now building the profile of Freedom Acquisition to help it attract companies that want to merge as a route to public ownership.
