Transactions involving corporate transformations, mergers and takeovers are among the most difficult tasks facing lawyers. Due to the often complicated ownership relations, existing debts and liabilities, the right to carry out regulated activities or the international nature, M&A activities are exposed to high risks. Overlooking or failing to take care of even minor matters can have serious negative consequences for the continued operation of the business. Thanks to our experience, we are able to ensure that such occurrences never happen.
We provide complex assistance in carrying out all types of M&A transactions. In doing so, we take care not only of the legal side, but also of the business perspectives of our clients. A merger or takeover of a company is not an end in itself and aims to achieve a specific economic result. Our job is to make sure that it is achieved without unnecessary problems before, during and in the post-transaction period. Although it sounds like a generic slogan, your security really is our priority.
Mergers and acquisitions of companies have no secrets from us - we are able to safely carry out ownership changes in business entities.
How can we help?
Preparation and execution of M&A transactions
We provide comprehensive development of the structure and model of an M&A transaction. We take part in the negotiations, support in obtaining financing and anti-monopoly approvals and draw up the documentation necessary for the entire process, including agreements for the sale of shares, businesses and organised parts of the company (SPA) and collateral documents. We also offer post-completion consultancy for the entire project.
Private Equity/Venture Capital
We have extensive experience in financing investments in the Private Equity and Venture Capital model. The support we offer includes the development of a structure and selection of an appropriate financing model, negotiations with funds or entities interested in obtaining financing, and the preparation of the necessary documentation, including contracts.
We have extensive experience in due diligence on companies and businesses, both for clients interested in acquiring them and for those preparing to sell them, with the aim of analysing their legal status and identifying all the risks to the planned transaction. In audits we take into account important aspects of the company's or enterprise's activity, including corporate issues, status of the enterprise's assets, concluded contracts, receivables and debts, internal documentation, relations with counterparties and the risk of claims against the enterprise, employee issues, environmental impact and proceedings to which the client is a party. Where our client is the selling party, we additionally advise on the process of preparing data and documents for the audit and support in the Q&A process.
We complement the methodology we have developed for supporting companies in M&A processes and raising external financing with our own solutions for management programmes. We facilitate the creation of management staff for our clients through incentive programmes for members of the company's bodies and its key employees. We successfully use financial instruments (bonds, subscription warrants) and introduce programmes in portfolio companies.
