Mergers and acquisitions are a dynamic and key area of our legal advice. Whether trade sale, private equity investor or venture capital - our clients can benefit from both the specialisation of our M&A lawyers and the broad positioning of our firm.

For example, our lawyers often coordinate transaction projects and negotiate share purchase agreements, while our tax advisors can cover the complete tax side of the transaction or - depending on the client's wishes - work alongside the existing tax advisor. Our auditors assist with the question of the appropriateness of the purchase price ("fairness opinion") or examine purchase price adjustment models. For example, the net/debt or working capital adjustment can often be optimised in favour of the client with a precise examination of the balance sheet items.

Unlike many medium-sized law firms, we can offer due diligence from a single source. In addition to legal due diligence, we naturally also cover tax and financial due diligence.

In recent years, we have been able to significantly expand our expertise in the field of venture capital. We regularly advise founders and investors on financing rounds and draft participation agreements, both for limited liability companies and for public limited companies or partnerships.

Of course, our M&A team also accompanies transactions entirely in English.

If legal issues from other jurisdictions are also involved, we can draw on a network of partner law firms from over 100 countries. In this way, we regularly coordinate cross-border transactions in the interest of our clients.
