Areas of Practice

International Mergers and Acquisitions
Our lawyers have regularly participated in numerous and valuable cross border mergers & acquisitions within both public securities and private markets. Our services cover the entire range of M&A’s activities from the negotiation and drafting of Nondisclosure Agreements, Term Sheets and Memorandum of Understandings, conducting legal, contractual, tax and functional due diligence, negotiating and drafting Asset and Stock Purchase Transactions, Joint Ventures and Divestitures, as well as carrying out post- merger integration and legal management services.

We have extensive experience and an established tracking record working on international M&A deals
In any merger or acquisition transaction, the initial stage of negotiating and drafting nondisclosure agreements, letters of intent or memorandum of understanding cannot be overstated and should never be overlooked. Those binding legal agreements set the stage for the prosecution of the negotiations and play an important for the successful outcome of the transaction.

Each and every stage of an international acquisition, from the letter on intent to due diligence to the acquisition agreements drafting and negotiation, plays a crucial role for the success of the deal and should not be overlooked   
The next stage of legal and tax due diligence is equally important, in that it enables the buyer to properly identify, evaluate and manage the risks and any critical issues affecting the transaction before embarking in the actual negotiation of the terms of the contractual acquisition agreement.

Effective M&A due diligence requires real world business experience knowldge of the industry and ability to understand and properly evaluate the target's business and associated risks and critical legal issues 
In the drafting and negotiation of the acquisition agreement, every single word encapsulates a often crucial legal concept and requires critical attention and expertise. Representations and warranties, pre closing and post closing covenants, non compete and proprietary information clauses go to the heart of the deal, while arbitration, jurisdiction and choice of law provisions dictate the balance of power in case a dispute arises after the execution of the transaction.

In negotiating and drafting acquisition agreements, every word counts
Finally, post acquisition integration is where the “rubber meets the road” and proper legal and business management including drafting and executing post closing key employees agreements, preparing human resources compliance materials, setting up corporate governance documents and preparing similar legal documents is essential to assure the long term success of the investment.
