Baker McKenzie has counselled Spanish perfume company Puig on the purchase of a majority stake in British makeup brand Charlotte Tilbury Beauty

Puig, the 106-year-old Barcelona-based Spanish perfume and fashion company, has purchased a controlling stake of the British makeup brand. Charlotte Tilbury, company’s founder and makeup artist, would continue her role as the chair of the London-based makeup and beauty brand, while the company’s present chief executive Demetra Pinsent would retain her role.

The transaction financial terms have not been disclosed.

Puig instructed BDT Capital Partners and Baker McKenzie on the operation, while Charlotte Tilbury was advised by Goldman Sachs, Jefferies, Freshfields and Withers.
