Mergers & Acquisitions

Netherlands

M&A transactions are a core activity within our practice. We advise on a wide range of domestic and cross-border transactions such as acquisitions and disposals of privately owned companies involving shares or specific assets and liabilities, privatizations and spin-offs. But also on equity investments, joint ventures and strategic alliances, mergers and demergers, acquisitions of financially troubled companies and restructurings.

Our deal expertise is not limited to merely handling legal technical issues but extends also to managing the entire process through the various stages of the transaction, including the due diligence exercise, tax planning and structuring issues, contract negotiations and post completion integration. M&A transactions require considerable and well coordinated teamwork. Through CMS, we can provide extensive coverage of key markets and jurisdictions around the world. This allows us to field experts skilled in the various disciplines necessary to execute complex and challenging M&A transactions at home as well as in nearly every significant market worldwide.

Our integrated approach enables us to combine deal and corporate expertise with complementary areas of expertise such as domestic and international tax planning, structured finance, regulatory, executive compensation and employee co-determination rights, antitrust and competition and intellectual property.

CMS advises large domestic and international corporations as well as smaller businesses with distinctive growth scenarios. Furthermore we assist investment banks acting as financial advisers to purchasers, targets receivers and administrators of financially troubled companies and management teams.
