Merger, disposal, acquisition
Specialists in cross-border Small and Mid Cap transactions, we regularly assist international companies in their acquisition or disposal of operations, whether total or partial (carve out) on French soil. With the assistance of our partners, we are able to take charge of the entire transactional process by offering a coordinated 360° vision and by playing a real facilitating role to accelerate the closing.
We provide our clients with multidisciplinary teams of professionals: auditors, lawyers, chartered accountants, tax specialists and consultants.
In consultation with the client, they analyze and evaluate the elements of the proposed acquisition, carry out an in-depth due diligence, determine the most appropriate legal and tax arrangements and implement the transaction after validation.
This approach is applied with the same competence to mergers, partial contributions of assets and joint ventures. The international experience of our group allows us to carry out these operations with a good knowledge of the differences in culture and mentality between each country. With a yearly practice of numerous projects, we are an interlocutor for transactions between France and Germany for the conduct of Due Diligence.
