We advise national and international companies and subsidiaries on the acquisition and sale of companies and participations both in asset deals or share deals. We also frequently advise investors and insolvency administrators in the course of the acquisition and sale of companies out of insolvency.  In addition, we act in takeover offers, auctions or buy-outs and the acquisition of interests in joint ventures.

We have been transaction specialists for many years with an impressive track record above all in the areas of engineering, media, energy and services. Our perfectly tuned team guarantees rapid and efficient conduct of the transactions and all necessary steps in the process. Our clients rightly do not expect a share purchase agreement off the shelf but an uncomplicated contract that nevertheless implements and secures their specific commercial assumptions and interests to the greatest possible extent. We advise individually and with maximum professional skill – from the structuring of the project to the Letter of Intent and the Due Diligence, the signing of the purchase agreement and the other agreements around the transaction. This does not end with closing and possibly necessary approval of the project by the anti-trust office having jurisdiction (German or European) but includes all post-acquisition issues thereafter.

As experienced M&A experts, we support our clients effectively and pragmatically in successfully completing the intended deal. We focus not only on the signing of the contract but keep the price and risk-relevant factors crucial for the economic success of the transaction and the later operative implementation in view.  In all transactions, we work flexibly with our specialist colleagues for the other legal areas possibly relevant for the specific transaction (e.g., anti-trust, IP, labour data protection and public commercial law). In Due Diligence reviews, our clients benefit from our full-service approach which enables us to reliably identify risks and all aspects which must be provided for on the way to an acquisition.

We form a team – as small as possible but always as effective as necessary – exactly composed according to the requirements of each transaction. You can rely on our professionalism, our capacity for adaptation and our unreserved support.

In close cooperation with insurance brokers and insurers, we develop insurance solutions for purchasers and sellers for risks in M&A transactions (Warranty & Indemnity Insurance).
