Mergers & Acquisitions


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
 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
 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.
