Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions

Our experience in mergers and acquisitions recommends us as deal-oriented lawyers with an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the market and legal systems that we operate in. Our multidisciplinary approach to M&A transactions is an additional benefit for our clients. We have the required expertise in capital markets, tax, finance, employment, intellectual property, environment, as well as merger control and acquisition finance that enables us to add value to the transactional support we provide.

Possessing a thorough understanding of our clients’ business is a top priority in our work. This enables us to provide not only specialized legal advice but entire legal project management by ensuring coordination between the client and other consultants advising on different aspects of the transactions.

In practice, we often act as local counsels for multi-jurisdictional transactions. Thus we are well acquainted with the unavoidable challenges to manage teams and accommodate various national requirements. For this reason, we take an anticipative approach to dealing with local jurisdiction issues and facilitate the timely completion of matters for international counsels with the least possible burden on the project.
