The M&A Law Practice:
Mergers and acquisitions represent an important aspect of the strategic shifting of the global market relations. In times of increasing competition, companies strive to find solutions for cooperation, which would place them at a competitive advantage. We learnt from our experience that mergers and acquisitions, as well as defence against them, are complex procedures and their success depends upon exact and timely planning, followed by accurate and effective implementation.
The mergers and acquisitions planning procedure is a complex process, requiring an effective cooperation of experts from various fields. The implementation of mergers and acquisitions requires accurate and timely management of numerous corporate, administrative and judicial procedures. As legal counsellors we play an important part in this process, as we need to decide upon a legally appropriate and effective strategy. We also need to ensure the accordance of our actions with general rules regulating mergers and acquisitions, as well as with numerous regulations specific to a particular industry. Before an acquisition process we need to conduct a thorough legal due diligence in order to recognise all the possible risks applicable to either the purchase or sale of shares.
In cases of non-agreed or hostile takeovers we need to decide upon the right defence strategy, and success can only be achieved through team work. A successful defence team cannot be complete without attorneys with knowledge and experience in corporate law, litigation and administrative procedures.
