Mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are very common, but they can involve lengthy and complex processes.

How can M&A transactions be completed most effectively, so as to obtain the expected transaction value and limit possible risks to the greatest extent?

It is necessary to know a lot about your own company and also the entire business sector within which it operates. The success of consolidation depends upon properly identifying strategic and financial intentions and goals, investors’ expectations and intangible issues such as corporate governance, the engagement of employees and managing customer relations.

 

We offer comprehensive advice and assistance during all types of M&A transactions. We also provide consulting services regarding company law and commercial contracts.

Our experience includes all kinds of transactions, including assets and share deals. We advise on projects to dispose of 100% of shares, package transactions connected with the creation of new corporate governance rules and cooperation rules in joint venture investments, including establishing controlled divestment mechanics in joint ventures (inc. put/call options, drag&tag along rights, waterfall schemes etc.).

How can we help?

We advise and support clients at all stages of their M&A transactions. The close cooperation between the M&A team and SSW’s teams from other practise areas, particularly SSW Finance and SSW Accounting, ensures that we deliver the most effective and efficient solutions.

  • We conduct due diligence audits (inc. legal, tax or finance), where relevant in cooperation with SSW Finance.
  • We advise on the optimum structuring of transactions so as to minimise commercial risks and maximise the achievement of a client’s goals and interests.
  • We design, draft and negotiate any necessary transaction-related documentation.
  • We represent clients before national administrative authorities and courts, including in proceedings before the competition authorities, with the support of SSW’s competition law team.
  • We provide post-transaction consulting services.
