Mergers & Acquisitions
Merges and acquisitions is a key area of our practice. We have broad experience in acquisitions and dispositions of both established and emerging businesses, whether public or private, domestic or international. We have advised multinational corporations, listed companies, large State-owned enterprises and professional investment institutions in their asset acquisitions, strategic minority investments, or controlling interest in regional companies and large group companies. We also advise target companies and their shareholders on the sale of their assets or shares. Our lawyers bring practical negotiating experience and structuring expertise to help our clients close a deal expeditiously while maximizing its interest.
We regularly act in cross-border M&A deals involving multiple jurisdictions, whether as the coordinating firm, or as advisors in the deal.
In addition to conventional M&As, our proficiency in diverse M&A transactions includes advising special committees of boards of directors, investment banks, and other M&A principals and financial advisors in special roles. We regularly advise in MBOs, buy-out funds, mezzanine debt funds and other acquisition vehicles, both with respect to their structuring and formation, and in connection with subsequent investments.
We also advise on acquisitions, restructurings, reorganizations, divestitures, share repurchases, and spin-off transactions involving listed companies in relation to issues ranging from tender offers and exemptions to transfers of assets.
