Mergers & Acquisitions

An experienced team of lawyers and tax advisors at your side to enable you to anticipate, structure, negotiate and implement your rapprochement operations

The Mergers & Acquisitions department of the firm advises French and foreign clients of various sizes in connection with external growth operations.

The firm’s analyses, carried out upstream, enable the managers of these structures to take decisions in full knowledge of the legal and tax context, whether French, German or other.

The Mergers & Acquisitions department has particular knowledge in the tax aspects of cross-border transactions and provides its clients with a unique know-how in structuring complex transactions.

Moreover, the department’s lawyers have significant experience in complex transactions carried out in several jurisdictions, which enables them to create significant added value both at the negotiation and implementation stages.

The assistance of the firm covers all the legal steps of an acquisition project, from the submission of an indicative offer to purchase within a competitive process, to the monitoring of the implementation of the transaction, through the drafting and the negotiation of the deeds and the performance of a bespoke legal and tax due diligence of the targeted entities.

Within a sale project, our firm’s assistance also extends to the preparation of virtual data-room and the identification in anticipation of key items to be dealt with within the Q&A exercise.

Thanks to its international presence in Paris and Düsseldorf and its cross-functional teams accustomed to working together on joint projects, the firm has developed a particular proficiency in assisting its clients in the implementation of cross-border projects, particularly those involving French, German and Russian entities.

The practice of the Mergers & Acquisitions department also routinely encompasses the structuring of capital growth operations.
