Mergers and acquisitions (M&A)

We advise on the sale, acquisition, division or merger of companies. We work with clients from all commercial sectors, including banking, manufacturing and technology companies.

We handle both asset deals and share deal transactions. We advise on projects involving the sale or purchase of 100% of shares, and on block transactions which require new corporate governance and cooperation principles to be developed.

We are a one-stop-shop, providing legal, tax and financial advice. We also advise on worldwide ventures, including cross border deals.

How can we help?

  • Confucting legal, tax and financial due diligence;
  • Negotiating and finalising merger and acquisition agreements;
  • Representing clients before administrative authorities, including antitrust authorities;
  • Providing pre- and post-transaction advice.
