Mergers and Acquisitions
When assisting on M&A, there is usually a need to set up a team of lawyers covering a range of areas of law, including tax, capital markets legislation, employment, pensions, competition law, as well as IPR and regulatory matters. Assistance in these areas requires a good understanding of accounting and economics, as well as the ability to understand industry-specific issues. In addition to experience and competence within the area of M&A, a number of our lawyers have degrees in economics.
We assist in all phases of transactions, from the initial planning and structuring, through negotiations and preparation of agreements, to completion and any subsequent restructurings. We prepare all relevant forms of agreements, such as NDAs, letters of intent, share purchase agreements, asset transfer agreements, shareholders’ agreements, etc.
Our assistance is distinguished by our high level of competence, service and partner attention. We aim at providing first class, practical advice tailored to the clients’ commercial goals.
