M&A Corporate

 

M&A

Thanks to our cross-practice approach to files, our expertise in mergers and acquisitions covers a wide range of cases. Transfer or acquisition transactions may therefore relate to companies, groups or goodwill. They may take place in the context of LBO or disinvestment transactions (carve out, public M&A…).

 

We also provide assistance in the context of capital or operational partnerships by means of joint-ventures or shareholders agreements and we even foresee termination provisions. To this end, our new Belgian subsidiary provides comprehensive assistance on French and European merger issues in collaboration with our good friends, when required.

 

In the context of these transactions we often provide the following services:

 

  • Tax and legal structuring;
  • Due diligence;
  • Assessment and follow-up of risks attached to the activity or transaction;
  • Drafting and negotiation of the whole contractual documentation relating to the transaction (including peripheral agreements relating to the transfer of intra-group links or the implementation of new agreements);
  • Assistance in the performance of condition precedents (intra-group restructuring, merge notification filed with competition authorities…);
  • Assistance provided during signing and closing transactions (review of the documentation exchanged by the parties, performance of shares transfer and all transactions pertaining thereto…).

 

Corporate

We offer companies and groups of companies a legal monitoring encompassing the following services :

 

  • Companies’ or groups’ restructuring (merger, division, partial transfer of assets…);
  • Shareholders agreements;

Our organization and cross-practice approach to cases and files enable us to provide full service in acquisition and restructuring transactions in all their legal aspects (tax, labour, competition law…) and in all fields of activity (industry, real estate, public works, tourism, communication, health…). We advise managers, investment funds and industrial groups.

 

When we advise quoted groups, we also provide assistance in the context of the following stock exchange issues:
