Mergers and Acquisitions

We regularly advise our clients on domestic and cross-border M&A transactions, especially in the mid-cap sector. We create and arrange M&A transaction structures for investors and companies from diverse sectors. We implement these structures efficiently and economically in the interests of our clients.

As well as drafting and negotiating sale and purchase agreements, our M&A lawyers are experts on drafting and negotiating loan agreements and other financing documents/structures, and on putting management profit-sharing programs into practice. We also specialize in the formation, restructuring and dissolving of joint ventures.

Our team also has a deep knowledge and experience of assisting on private-equity and venture-capital transactions. We provide both corporate-law and tax-law advice on such deals.

When it comes to complex M&A transactions, our clients benefit from our interdisciplinary approach: In each case, our M&A lawyers work closely with experts in tax law, competition and antitrust law, labor/employment law, real-estate law or business valuation. We use our tax and accounting expertise to benefit our clients when advising them on purchase-price adjustment mechanisms and accounting issues, valuation and purchase-price allocations, and more.

If conflict is unavoidable in the wake of a transaction, we represent our clients in M&A-related litigation (including aversion and assertion of warranty claims).

  • Company takeovers
  • Domestic and cross-border joint ventures
