Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions

Our assistance in mergers and acquisitions covers the broadest range of matters thanks to our cross-practice approach. Thus, transfers or acquisitions may involve companies, groups or business assets. These operations can deal with LBO or divestment transactions such as carve-outs or M&A public transactions.

 

We can also support both capital-intensive and operational partnerships through joint-venture agreements or shareholders’ agreements, up to providing the terms of exit in the long term. These operations often include the following services:

 

  • Tax and legal structuring;
  • Legal audit (or assistance in the preparation of the documents to be audited);
  • Assistance in identifying and monitoring the risks specific to the activity or operation;
  • Drafting and negotiation of all contractual documentation relating to the transaction (including peripheral agreements relating to the termination of intra-group links or the implementation of new agreements;
  • Assistance in the fulfilment of suspensive conditions (whether intra-group restructuring or notification of concentrations to competition authorities);
  • Full assistance in signing and closing operations (verification of the documentation exchanged between parties, completion of the transfer of securities and all surrounding operations…).
  • Restructuring of a company or group (merger, demerger, partial asset contribution, etc.);
  • Implementation of shareholder agreements;
  • Approval of the accounts;
  • Intra-group agreements (regulated agreements, cash pooling, transfer pricing);
  • Liability of directors and companies;
  • Corporate capital investment ;
  • Disputes between shareholders.

Our approach is based on a careful anticipation of our clients’ strategic interests. Our project-based structure and sector-based foresight ensure that our clients benefit from calibrated expertise, whatever their sector is (energy, banking and finance, real estate, wines and spirits, media, pharmaceuticals, IT, etc.).
