Businesses may be sold for different reasons; retirement, rapid growth, poor performance, the desire to make a return on investment, but also disagreement between the shareholders. In all such cases, businesses are merged or acquired by a purchaser with a view to creating further value going forward. Such transactions require clear and complete contracts setting out the terms thereof. We advise corporate clients, management teams, private equity firms and business owners on a variety of M&A transactions from the relatively straightforward to the complex.
Our expertise includes: full acquisitions, participations, joint ventures, asset deals, management buy-ins or buy-outs (MBO / MBI) and controlled auctions. We represent clients on both buy side and sell side, and advise in domestic and international transactions. We work closely together with tax, intellectual property, employment, antitrust and other specialists to deliver the full range of expertise required to close the deal.
We listen to your goals and objectives so that we can chart a course to make the transaction successful. From drafting and/or negotiating the letter of intent through assisting you with your due diligence process, document drafting and negotiation, and closing. We are known for our practical and commercial approach. Our main focus is to get the job done, thereby focusing on protecting your interests while enabling you to achieve your financial goals.
