Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

We have been involved in a series of the largest and most complex domestic and cross-border M&A transactions. We have extensive expertise in a wide range of transactions, including, for example, statutory mergers, stock-for-stock exchanges, spin-offs and any combination of these transactions, acquisitions, divestures, alliances, takeovers and takeover defenses, and restructuring transactions in various situations. Our clients operate in virtually all business, industrial and financial sectors. Our lawyers are highly experienced in complex M&A transactions, both domestic and cross-border, including, for example, M&A transactions arising from bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings, tender offers targeted at listed companies and buyouts.

Given our experience in numerous high profile transactions at home and abroad, we have accumulated strong technical expertise, and we have the ability to provide our clients with strategic commercial legal advice, having sound knowledge of our clients’ business and commercial objectives. We offer legal expertise in all aspects of the M&A process, from transaction structure planning and other strategic considerations, to undertaking and managing due diligence, to drafting and negotiating all relevant documentation and execution. We also assist our clients with antitrust issues (merger clearance), resolution of any disputes and any employment law issues arising from or in connection with the transaction, as well as advice on post-merger integration strategies.
