Let’s get
things clear.

Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

M&A is an umbrella term that encompasses various transactions regarding the transfer of companies or business units (mergers, divisions, sale of shares or assets, reorganizations, etc.). 

In order to successfully close an M&A deal, the legal structure must be impeccable. Only then will a business transfer have a long-lasting effect. Such transactions are usually complex and require a high degree of trust between lawyer and client.

We handle a wide range of M&A projects for both local and international clients, which we assist throughout the entire process. 

Our M&A clients range from strategic buyers, private equity funds (sponsors) and their portfolio companies, financial investors, listed companies and public companies, to small and medium-sized enterprises, family businesses and their shareholders. 

We offer assistance and advice in areas such as
  • Public takeovers and private M&A
  • Private equity, joint ventures and commercial partnerships
  • Insurance associated with mergers and acquisitions ("W&I insurance")
  • Transaction processes and due diligence
  • Communication/cooperation with banking and financial institutions, financial advisors and other actors in the M&A process

We also have a special competence in the acquisition of assets or a business from a company in insolvency, judicial reorganization or bankruptcy.
