Mergers & Acquisitions

Auction procedures have become widespread, as have fact books and seller due diligence. Whilst sellers are optimising their strategies, it is becoming increasingly complicated for buyers to finance the acquisition of companies. The structuring of transactions, with regard to post-merger integration, is also attracting a lot of attention. Ever greater regulation is ultimately resulting in a steady increase in the complexity of all aspects of an M&A transaction.

Not only do the companies involved have to meet tougher requirements: an increasingly litigious environment is also placing higher demands on these companies’ executive bodies, particularly where compliance is concerned.

Only integrated and multidisciplinary advice from an experienced team can ensure that the risks for all parties involved in an M&A transaction are identified and appropriately handled in line with the parties’ economic objectives.
