Our main services include particularly comprehensive deal management on sale-side as well as buy-side transactions:

  • Comprehensive preparation of the deal (assistance in the auctioning process, offers, preparation of letter of intent and non-disclosure agreement, organisation of the data room, assistance in the Q&A process);
  • Full scope or partial due diligence as it is required including bankable due diligence report;
  • Negotiation, conception and drafting of share or asset purchase agreements as well as all other transaction documents;
  • Assistance in or conduct of the closing process as well as post-closing integration measures.

Our clients appreciate not only our legal skills and experience in handling M&A transactions, but our deep understanding for their commercial challenges, strategic approach and cultural background. Our experience enables us to deal with the different perspectives of international private equity firms, investment banks, multi-national strategic buyers or the German Mittelstand.

Our special expertise is the management of international M&A projects. As part of a strong personal network, our M&A team regularly cooperates with highly qualified local experts in all major jurisdictions across the globe and is able to find the partner best fitted for the particular transaction.

During the M&A process, we are our client’s single point of contact for all relevant legal information from all fields of legal expertise, such as real estate, employment or anti-trust. In addition, we closely coordinate with other advisor teams involved in the transaction in order to achieve the best results for our client. At all times, we act in a time and cost efficient manner.
