Mergers & Acquisitions
Corporate acquisitions and mergers
Our clients appreciate our expertise and speed in the legal and fiscal structuring, design and implementation of domestic and cross-border corporate acquisitions, divestments and mergers. The spectrum of successfully completed corporate transactions includes legal and tax advice to venture capital and private equity companies, publicly-listed companies and family-owned businesses.
We support both sellers and purchasers with a committed and experienced transaction team that we compile according to each industry and your individual needs. We always bear your economic interests in mind in this process.
Our range of services in the M&A sector includes legal and tax advice covering the entire transaction process, from the preliminary analysis and structuring of a new project to the financing and execution of the transaction, contract signature, transfer of the company and integration into the corporate structure or the investment portfolio.
We also deal with the individual aspects of a transaction, such as its structuring; legal, tax and financial company analysis (due diligence); negotiation of all the contracts from the letter of intent to financing, the purchase agreement or capital contribution agreement, legal opinions on particular legal issues, the structuring of securities and the management of the sales process. In the undesirable event that a dispute arises between the parties, we find a fast and feasible resolution of the dispute that is in the interest of our client.
We have successfully provided advice for many years on transactions involving power plants, private and commercial property, property portfolios, aircraft, production and industrial facilities as well as asset classes in particular in the area of alternative investment funds (AIF). As a result, we have become experts in the cross-border purchase, operation and financing of high-quality capital goods with a variety of models (including lease and loan financing).
We structure and implement (cross-border) transactions, investments and financing. We analyse existing collaterals; figure out the ownership structures of single assets, entire corporations, movables or real estate; and develop and implement transfer processes. In structuring property financing we identify cash flows and deal with the related risks. This is mostly done in parallel in different jurisdictions.
