Mergers & Acquisitions

Whether it is the purchase or disposal of companies or shareholdings - our consulting activities extend to the entire range of transaction forms, including company rental agreements. In the process, we accompany all phases of the transaction, from the letter of intent, the structuring and control of the transaction to due diligence and contract creation, to post-closing.

We guarantee a holistic M&A consulting service by involving experienced specialists from the areas of company, tax and labour, as well as cartel and unfair competition law. An interdisciplinary team and on request international team individually compiled in line with your requirements works hand in hand and thus guarantees tailor-made solutions – including with cross-border transactions.
