Mergers & Acquisitions
Our experienced associates have the requisite legal and practical skills to organise, supervise and manage all aspects of a merger or acquisition of companies. We undertake all stages of a M&A procedure namely: the initial conducting of the due diligence procedure, preparation of non-disclosure agreements, memorandum of understanding, share purchase agreement, share subscription agreement and shareholders agreement. There are many boxes to tick before a merger or acquisition is considered complete. During the preparation of all said documentation, we ensure that no issues or complications will arise and facilitate a fast and effective response to clients’ goals.
We are also accustomed to deal with complicated and various reorganisations, restructurings and cross-border transactions. The cornerstone of our Firm is close cooperation with you and your other advisers to produce innovative structures and solutions that address the risks and challenges faced on a variety of transactions from the relatively straightforward to the very complex.
The Firm’s approach is to understand our clients` businesses and markets, including the risks associated with their sector and how they can be mitigated in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner. The most important prerequisite for a smooth process is to have a range of technical considerations that need to be addressed such as tax, competition, pensions, environmental or regulatory.
