Are you planning on buying, selling or merging a company? We as Legal Advisory offer assistance and advice for takeovers, mergers, divisions, pre-exits and exits, participations, employee shareholdings, restructuring, management buyouts and buy ins, and joint ventures, and so on. We also carry out legal due diligence investigations on companies for the purpose of mergers or acquisitions.
An experienced team at your side
Our M&A legal experts have many years of experience in the buying and selling process and other kinds of participations. Based on this experience, we can identify the risks of a transaction early on and know how to identify potential deal breakers in time. We offer appropriate and practical solutions. Moreover, our legal M&A experts take on tough negotiations if this is necessary. Throughout the acquisition process, we keep our eyes on the details, while at the same time not losing sight of the big picture, so that we can reach consensus and ensure that agreements are properly recorded.
From complexity to simplicity
Legal aspects are an important factor when acquiring a business. We support our clients throughout the entire acquisition process, from intention to transfer. In doing so we reduce complexity to simplicity. Whether you’re looking to acquire, sell or restructure a company, allow employees to hold shares or have a legal due diligence investigation carried out, you have come to the right place.
Legal Due Diligence
Virtually every purchase and sales process involves a due diligence investigation whereby legal M&A experts conduct legal research. After all, it is very important for a buyer to know how the entity being bought operates from an organisational point of view and where potential risks are. This involves legal M&A experts investigating the contractual and other obligations with customers and suppliers, examining the documents required under corporate law, the property, regulations under employment law, and claims and disputes. We can then advise the buyer, based on the information acquired, on how to shield, exclude or mitigate certain risks, or negotiate about warranties or the purchase price.
Thinking of selling your business some time soon?
Legal Advisory also gives advice to sellers in the preparatory phase of the buying and selling process, making sure that the company is prepared for the sale. You will be given information about your company’s legal risks and liabilities, so that you can identify and act on legal risks or potential deal breakers in time. Consequently, you can avoid compromising the takeover you have in mind during the sales process.
