Mergers & Acquisitions
» We assist our clients with their projects for sale or acquisition of companies, by negotiating and drafting the legal documentation, from the beginning of the process (letter of intent, letter of offer) until the finalization of the operation, (acquisition contract and guarantee of liability) with the constant aim of achieving the optimal conclusion in the best interest of our clients, including tax and property interests.
We also intervene in the context of audits and acquisition procedures.
Our activities cover both acquisitions and disposals as well as divestitures
or acquisitions financed on structured debt (LBO, OBO etc).
The firm is also able to prepare and defend merger clearance cases before the competition authorities when their authorization is required.
We are also often asked to intervene in the context of minority investments or capital openings (offerings) (structuring of the investment, shareholders' pacts, etc) and the levies of funds including start-ups.
We also intervene in the framework of family transfers of companies by optimizing the tax costs and by paying particular attention to the patrimonial aspects of the managers and the shareholders.
We also pay particular attention to securing intellectual property rights (trademarks, copyrights, models, etc.) that can constitute a significant element of the value of the company.
Finally, in liaison with the legal teams of the firm, we assist our clients in the context of litigation related acquisitions (exposure of asset and liability guarantees, payment of price supplements, negotiations etc).
Our specialized teams are led by Fabrice Ségurel, Associate Lawyer and Aurélien Meralo.
