Transactions

The pace of market and technical developments in the field of transactions is rapid. Legal advisers need to be immersed in the industry, ever ready to quickly adapt to change, to appraise and to influence the thinking on new developments. State of the art know-how is vital – and our claim.

M&A / Private Equity

We advise the involved players at every level, in every stage and on either side of the transaction process: Strategic as well as financial investors, management and portfolio companies, as well as entrepreneurs, in each case on the seller and buyer side. This gives us a deep understanding of the market, its commercial drivers and risk appetite.

We have years of experience and a strong track record of acting for strategic and institutional investors.

We develop innovative transaction structures tailored to your needs - on the seller and buyer side. We also support your direct investments, co-investments, joint ventures, management participation programs, recaps and other refinancings.

We prepare and negotiate the transaction documents and conducts due diligence reviews. Further, we advise on Warranty & Indemnity Insurances and regulatory requirements.

Venture Capital

The nature of early stage investments presents its own particular set of challenges: balancing the investor's risk profile with the founders' desire to maintain control of their business and their own economic interests.

We fully understand these challenges and can navigate through them, whether from the perspective of the investors, the company or the founders.

We advise start-ups on the legal structuring, foundation, financing structure and restructuring in the course of their development.

Further, we conduct detailed legal analysis (due diligence) for potential investors and render pragmatic implementation advice.
