M&A company acquisitions.

Advising clients on the purchase and sale of companies and shares is one of the areas our firm specialises in. We believe that it is our job to ensure the best possible structuring, organisation and negotiation of the transaction. To achieve this, we collaborate with consultants from other disciplines and ensure we understand your language, whether in relation to structured sales processes with multiple bidders or more traditional sales processes.

Where required, we can put together teams of specialist attorneys who will assist with the relevant tasks – for example, in the area of antitrust law, employment law, IT law or property law. This applies in particular to the due diligence phase for company acquisitions, but also to reorganisations under company law.
