M&A and Private Equity

Our Mergers and Acquisitions, Venture Capital and Private Equity practice is broad and both nationally and cross-border/EU oriented.
It entails advice and assistance including negotiation and document preparation for inter alia:

  • Share or asset acquisitions/divestitures;
  • Venture capital investments;
  •  Private equity investments;
  • Acquisitions/divestitures of minority or majority stakes in privately-held or publicly listed companies;
  • MBO’s, LBO’s, etc;
  • Joint-ventures;
  • Strategic collaborations; etc.

Assistance is provided at the various stages of any such transactions:

  • pre-contractual phase (letter of intent, MOU, non-disclosure agreement, etc.);
  • due diligence
  • controlled auction procedure;
  • drafting and negotiation of the contractual documentation;
  • organization of “signing” and “closing” process;
  • “post-closing” phase.

In the EU we work with an extensive and reliable network of correspondent law firms.
Our team also provides a full service in corporate litigation matters, in particular in case of post-acquisition claims and shareholders disputes.
