M&A

One of our core advisory areas is advising German and international clients in the acquisition of companies and participations both in Germany and abroad. This includes takeovers of publicly listed companies and advice with regard to joint ventures. What many transactions require, rather than large teams of advisors, is experienced lawyers with an eye for what’s important. And this is where we shine. As highly-qualified and experienced specialists in small, smoothly interacting teams.
