Publicly listed groups, financial institutions, and “Mittelstand” companies rely on our trusted advice for complex national and international acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, and similar transactions.

Our in-depth experience with numerous M&A transactions and thorough understanding of business needs allow us to identify the critical elements of a deal and to anticipate its economic implications. With innovative and sustainable solutions, we pave the way for the successful implementation of transactions for our clients.

Taking a holistic approach, we cover all major aspects, including financing, tax optimization, acquisition strategy, and corporate structuring to achieve the objectives of our clients. The collaborative approach of our practice ensures that our client’s goals and expectations are not only met but exceeded.

We also work closely with our international practices to ensure, in particular, that all English and US legal considerations are fully addressed, as these laws are becoming increasingly important in complex cross-border deals.
