Mergers & Acquisitions

We advise and support our clients in mergers, the sale and purchase of companies and participations, business transfers, spin-offs, outsourcing, management buyouts, shareholder agreements and joint ventures, share buybacks, auctioning procedures and in connection with friendly, as well as hostile, takeovers of listed companies.

We conduct legal and tax due diligence reviews, conduct negotiations, obtain official authorizations and draft, negotiate and implement the required agreements.

Complex M&A transactions require expert advice, including typically on tax, cartel, intellectual property, labour and environmental law issues. Our team has the requisite resources and expertise to provide invaluable support and assistance in these areas during the preparation and implementation of demanding M&A projects. We advise our clients regularly on all corporate and tax law issues arising from their daily business, e.g. on the choice of legal form, tax status and corporate seat, on notarisation and the founding of all corporate and organizational entities across Switzerland. We advise our clients not only on the foundation of new companies but also on the reorganization of existing companies. In the case of disputes, we provide support to our clients in all areas of M&A related corporate law before national courts, arbitration tribunals and relevant authorities.
