The Mergers & Acquisitions Practice group advises large Austrian and international corporations, financial institutions, funds and other investors on all legal issues in connection with national and international acquisitions, takeovers and mergers.
Our lawyers have gained extensive, also international experience with various types of transactions, including joint-ventures, spin-offs and MBOs. We advise and represent our clients regarding acquisitions, equity investments, company sales and share sales, including the drafting and negotiation of all relevant contracts. We can also offer tailor-made cross-border support in M&A deals as we have excellent contacts with foreign law firms.
Our M&A specialists have specific industry experience in the construction, biotech, energy, infrastructure, media and logistics sectors, among others.
For the performance of legal due diligence exercises, we work closely with all other practice groups of our firm in order to bundle the expertise of our specialists where complex legal issues are at stake. We liaise with the specialists of our Restructuring and Insolvency Law practice to provide support regarding acquisitions in crisis or insolvency scenarios (Distressed M&A).
Our lawyers do not only have excellent legal expertise but also a sound economic understanding. They are, therefore, often involved not only in the drafting and negotiation of contracts but also at an early stage in the structuring of M&A transactions, which enables them to provide our clients with comprehensive and long-term support for their projects.
