Mergers, acquisitions and restructuring form an essential part of a company’s national and international growth strategy. These transactions, however, which require expertise in a number of business, tax and employment law disciplines, are becoming increasingly complex and have major business and financial implications. In this environment, we aim to :
Evaluate the real business implications of the transactions we advise on
Provide our clients with effective and constructive assistance throughout the structuring and negotiation of transactions
Ensure that deals are implemented at the contract drafting stage
We handle all aspects of mergers & acquisitions and restructurings :
Documentation and contract drafting
Support in negotiations
Acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures
Restructurings (mergers, asset transfers, etc.) on a French and international level
Arranging and structuring finance (equity, MBOs, MBIs)
Data room and due diligence
Stock exchange law
Our strength lies in our ability to put together multi-disciplinary teams, including specialists from each discipline concerned : taxation, employment law, competition law, European law, intellectual property law, property law, etc.
In addition, membership of Geneva Group International network strengthens our national practice with strong local practices in the major EEC and not EEC countries.
We can also draw on this network, where appropriate, to provide our clients with solutions that go beyond the purely French context.
