Corporate - M&A

Back to Corporate/M&A

Our success is due to our M&A lawyers assisting hundreds of all size enterprises in relation to the Luxembourg law aspects of both local and international mergers, acquisitions and sales of assets and shares, public takeovers, auctions, take privates, restructurings (from refinancing to insolvency proceedings), joint ventures (whether incorporated or not), and general corporate and company law work in virtually all business sectors. They have extensive experience in advising local and non-Luxembourg M&A players, including industrial companies, real estate investors, investment and commercial banks, financial advisors and public authorities. The deals we do are of all levels of complexity and scale. As business lawyers with a hardworking culture and a high degree of responsiveness, we are more than mere legal technicians to our clients. As a result, we have been exposed to the full range of Luxembourg and international issues purchasers and sellers encounter in a M&A transaction: we help structure deals around legal and business risks and uncertainties.

A critical component of our practice is our acquisition finance capability. It has a substantial experience in acquisition capital structures and has in-depth knowledge of senior debt structures and of more complex arrangements, such as vendor finance and hybrid capital structures (combining senior, second lien and mezzanine debt).

"They provide the documentation, logistic by taking care of the meeting and registration with the notary and chamber of commerce. Good communication during the different steps. "
