Mergers and Acquisitions

We are a reliable and competent partner throughout the entire cycle of any M&A. Our attorneys take into careful consideration the special characteristics and needs of different industries in order to make the M&A succeed. Our M&A practice has enjoyed great long-standing cooperation with corporate finance actors, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs. With the help of our experts, your acquisition will succeed effortlessly and cost-efficiently.

The transfer of ownership of a family business or of a growth company is a multi-stage process that requires business knowledge and extensive expertise in acquisition law. An acquisition can mean not only the sale of a company, but also intergenerational transfer, or even engagement of key employees via shares or option arrangements. In our practice, we always take into account the matters of taxation, employment law and data protection. When necessary, our lawyers specialized in family and succession law can also establish any risks related to marriage or succession legislation.

Before an M&A, it is often required to restructure a company or corporate group by demerging, merging, or taking other measures to lighten the balance sheet or to clarify the structure of a business group. Once the basis for the change of ownership is in order, our experienced M&A team will arrange a virtual data room and facilitate legal due diligence in its entirety.

Our attorneys are experienced agents in cross-border transactions. As a client of our firm, you gain access to our international network, which allows us to offer you specialist guidance in the target country’s legislation for even the most challenging M&A situations.
