Mergers & acquisitions / Consulting on transactions / Restructuring

Markets change. So do companies, of course. That’s why existing companies and corporate structures need to be reviewed regularly to ensure they still make good economic sense – and make the best use of available legal and tax options.

We can work with you to see whe­ther mer­gers and acqui­si­ti­ons might help achieve your busi­ness goals through the acqui­si­tion or divest­ment of equity inte­rests. Then toge­ther we can carry out the purchase, sale or mer­ger stra­tegy we arrive at with you, with due atten­tion to all legal and tax aspects.

But mar­ket situa­ti­ons can also make it necessary to change struc­tu­res wit­hin a com­pany or cor­po­rate group. We’ll find the best solu­tion to take acco­unt of your indi­vi­dual cor­po­rate needs, through a restruc­tu­ring or con­trac­tual arran­ge­ments.
