Lawyers for post-merger integration (PMI)

Steuerrecht

The phase of post-merger integration (PMI) is the decisive one in numerous M&A projects. This is because whether the successful closing is also followed by a successful integration process often only becomes apparent after the takeover, merger or joint venture has been completed.

The CMS tax practice post-merger integration lawyers will assist you to set the right tax course early on. In every phase of the transaction, they have all tax factors in their sights which will later be important for post-closing and tax claim management.

The advice provided by the CMS lawyers in connection with post-merger integration starts with the tax due diligence and already at this stage focuses on the choice of an optimal integration structure from a tax perspective. We can assist you with setting up financing structures in such a way that transaction costs do not get out of hand. Where a company is being purchased out of a tax group, the CMS post-merger integration lawyers ensure the most tax-efficient consolidation of results.

Our PMI lawyers and tax advisors also rely on tax-optimised solutions where it is necessary to restructure the management and corresponding remuneration structures. Where it is a question of preventing breaches of tax regulations to prevent impending consequences from the tax authorities, our PMI tax experts shed light on the target company's tax compliance system and take care of integrating or combining the compliance systems.

Finally, on the basis of their many years of experience in the field of post-M&A tax claim management, our M&A tax lawyers can assist you to identify and classify possible claims in order to then assert them or defend yourself against them.
