Mergers & Acquisitions
M&A Transactions Transcending National Borders
BRANDHOFF OBERMÜLLER PARTNER specializes in the cross-border sale, acquisition, restructuring, and transformation of companies and enterprises around the globe, as well as in the creation and management of joint ventures between these entities.
The interwoven nature of our Bankruptcy and M&A teams accords us a distinctive advantage in offering legal services pertaining to the sale and purchase of distressed or insolvent businesses.
Our legal and tax expertise derives in particular from the fields of information and communications technology (the digital economy), from trade and real estate, and from the manufacturing sector. Above all, we specialize in transactions which arise out of the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries, electronics industry, component manufacturing and facility construction, automotive supply, and energy.
Owner-operated Companies at the Heart of our Practice
For many years, we have successfully stood behind business families, family businesses and other owner-operated companies in their business transactions.
We know the entrepreneurial spirit. Entrepreneurs approach transactions in a way that is guided by both passion and economic wit. While they are as a rule especially careful with the resources of their enterprise, they also tend to bet on greater risks if the payoff is justifiable, transaction costs are reduced or the potential liability is manageable.
Accordingly, we follow a distinctly value-oriented approach in our counsel to ensure that our clients enjoy a quantifiable benefit with every transaction. We will, therefore, not only represent your legal, but also your economic interests throughout our relationship.
We possess extensive experience with M&A transactions on deals which have ranged in value from one to one-hundred million euros. This expertise stems not only from our work as counsel at major international law firms, but also from our duties at a number of diverse and noteworthy companies in positions such as General Counsel, Head of M&A, and managing director. We incorporate the commercial and practical skills and expertise gained there into our legal and tax advice. Because of this, we are astutely aware of the risks and dangers associated with a merger, an acquisition, a restructuring, divestiture, leveraged buyout, spin-off, or carve-out. We are thus uniquely armed with the knowledge, tools and experience necessary to help you successfully navigate even the most fragile of transactions.
