Mergers and acquisitions
For many years we have advised clients in various types of transactions involving acquisitions, mergers, corporate divisions and reorganizations, and restructuring of companies. We also advise on the sale of enterprises (asset deals). Our experience includes both international and local projects. We specialize in medium-sized transactions.
We offer comprehensive advice on transactions, ensuring clients legal and tax security, from a full examination of the legal status of the company or property (due diligence), through design of the transaction structure, analysis of tax aspects, and drafting of the transaction documentation, including preliminary agreements, confidentiality agreements, investment agreements and shareholder agreements.
We support and represent clients in negotiations and at closing, and in proceedings before public bodies to obtain the necessary administrative decisions. When the transaction requires, we conduct merger control proceedings before the president of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.
In our experience, we have represented all parties to transactions. We have advised on purchase and sale of companies and advised management boards in capital restructuring, share capital increases, and buyout and redemption of shares.
We always act with a view to legal security, protection of our clients’ interests, and limitation of the risk of disputes between the parties to the transaction. But if a dispute is unavoidable, we also support our clients through advice and representation in judicial and arbitration proceedings.
When advising on M&A and other transactions, we draw on the experience of lawyers from the firm’s corporate law, competition law and corporate tax practices, as well as the commercial real estate practice when the transaction involves real property.
