More advice for transactions services and M&A

The question of whether a company should be acquired, sold or transferred to another company raises a number of issues besides the legal aspects associated with such a transaction. Our M&A specialists provide a sound decision-making basis, regardless of whether you find yourself in the position of buyer or seller. Our interdisciplinary teams of experts help you with quickly identifying possible deal-breakers and seizing any opportunities that may arise.

Our expertise in buy-side due diligence provides buyers with a sense of security with regard to the company’s situation, but also with regard to the adequacy of the purchase price. A systematic process for preparing the documents that are required for the transaction (vendor due diligence) puts you in a position where you (as the seller) are able to identify all of the items that must be discussed with potential buyers. It means that you are better able to manage the contract negotiations and lay the foundation for a successful closing.
