Mergers and Acquisitions involves the management and strategic decision making in the purchase and/or joining with other companies. With mergers, two organisations make agreements to combine their workforce and business, establishing a new name for their new company. However, in an acquisition, one business purchases the second company to be absorbed into their parent organisation, or maintain full control of the company as a subsidiary.

If you are in the process of making a merger or acquisition your legal case may involve:

  • Cross-border transactions
  • Public company takeover bids
  • Acquisitions and disposals of private and public companies
  • Restructuring of corporate entities
  • Management buyouts (MBOs) and management buy-in (MBI)
  • Private equity and venture capital
  • Joint ventures and other forms of collaboration arrangements
