Mergers and Acquisitions

Dedication and absolute professionalism

 SANDS has a dozen partners and lawyers engaged solely in M&A. Further, advice and assistance with mergers and transactions often requires additional market-leading expertise from other specialised environments in SANDS. 

We put together a trim team that covers all the involved legal fields such as taxation, stock exchange and bonds legislation (capital markets), labour law, pensions, competition, intangible rights, regulatory matters and so forth. Assistance and advice in M&A demands first class understanding of accounting and economy, and the ability to understand and work with branch-specific matters. In addition to highly qualified expertise in M&A, several of the group members have also studied and qualified in economics.

How SANDS works 

SANDS assists in all phases of mergers and transactions, from the planning stage and structuring, through negotiations and contract preparation and to implementation and consequent restructuring if so required. We assist in the preparation of all types of relevant agreement, including but not limited to confidentiality agreements, letters of intent, share purchase agreements, acquisitions, shareholder agreements and so forth, as well as transaction related investigations.

Our advisory services are typified by leading edge expertise, top service and a high level of partner focus. We provide first class practical advice adapted to the client’s commercial objectives.    

Examples of the processes we often assist in:

  • Choice of transaction structure 
  • Preparation of agreements 
  • Contract negotiations
  • Due diligence
  • Procuring permits, licences etc from the authorities
  • Restructuring processes
  • Mergers and demergers
  • Establishing joint ventures

The team is commercially minded and extremely responsive, as well as very pleasant to work with.
