Mergers & Acquisitions

THE CHALLENGE

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

OUR PRACTICE

We handle all aspects of mergers & acquisitions and restructurings :
-  Documentation and contract drafting
-  Support in negotiations

Acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures
-  Shareholders’ agreements
-  Restructurings (mergers, asset transfers, etc.) on a French and international level
-  Arranging and structuring finance (equity, MBOs, MBIs)
-  Investment Capital
-  Legal audits
-  Data room and due diligence
-  IPOs
-  Stock exchange law

OUR APPROACH
-  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.
