M&A and Corporate

M&A and Corporate

We advise private, industrial and financial players in national and international M&A transactions, in particular acquisitions and divestments of shares and assets, mergers and joint ventures. The target companies can be all from owner-managed Mittelstand companies to international groups, also distressed or insolvent enterprises. Even beyond transactions, we advise our clients in all material areas of corporate law.

In M&A transactions, we cover the entire process from due diligence through drafting and negotiating of the relevant agreements (purchase agreement and ancillary agreements) to closing, post-closing and other implementation work, including any claims under the purchase agreement.

We put great value on "getting the deal done", with a pragmatic approach strictly based on the client's specific interests and concerns: We define the scope of the due diligence together with the client and deliver a focused report; we draft agreements with straightforward structure and wording; and finally, we lead negotiations efficiently so as to find appropriate solutions for each transaction.,


Both in transaction-related issues and in day-to-day matters, we advise Nordic, other international and German enterprises on the material aspects of German corporate law, in particular regarding the following areas:

  • establishing of companies;
  • share capital measures and other constitutional matters;
  • shareholders' agreements;
  • change of management;
  • allocation of responsibilities and other internal management structures (corporate governance);
  • restructurings; and
  • liquidation of companies.

In case of financing issues in connection with an acquisition or divestment or within a group of companies, we work closely together with the colleagues from our bank and finance practice.


Where required, we also coordinate the support of local counsels worldwide which we select from our proven international network.
