Our teams have a proven track record of successfully completing public M&A and capital market transactions over many public takeovers of listed companies. The CMS public takeover lawyers understand how the capital markets work and leverage that knowledge to ensure efficient project management across a wide range of public takeover scenarios.
The CMS lawyers for public takeovers bring together specialist knowledge and practical experience in all the relevant areas of law. Experts in takeover law, stock corporation law and capital markets law work closely with specialists from other fields, such as IP/IT, commercial law, competition, tax, finance and employment.
Target companies, their executive bodies, major shareholders and investors all rely on the advice of our teams for public takeovers, as do the banks involved. The work of our public takeover lawyers covers every phase of public M&A transactions, from the transaction structure, offer documents and coordination with the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) to control and profit transfer agreements, the exclusion of minority shareholders (squeeze-out) and leaving the stock exchange (delisting).
