Details can be decisive.

We concentrate on the detail.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We provide advice on all the legal aspects of the sale and purchase of enterprises and shareholdings. We provide support on questions of structuring prior to the transaction, when processing and conducting the due diligence and during the contract negotiations to follow. Our skilled and experienced teams guarantee speedy and efficient implementation; one of the special strengths of our advice is the particularly strong cohesion between colleagues from different specialist areas who contribute their own special expertise. Thanks to the close contacts we maintain in our Law Firm Network we also involve our foreign colleagues in international transactions. And we support the management team on all questions arising in the transaction phase and thereafter. Typical focal points are:

  • Support in the early phase, non-disclosure and exclusivity regulations, preliminary contract, Letter of Intent (LoI), Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
  • Structuring the transaction and the transaction management, in particular in
    • Classical company sale/purchase agreements (“share deal” or “asset deal”)

    • Joint ventures
    • Cross-border mergers

  • Contract management on signing and closing and support on post-closing measures
