and reorganizations

Transaction experience, in-depth industry knowledge and a target- and solution-oriented approach are only some of the success factors for an optimal, time-efficient and successful organization and implementation of desired M&A transactions. We at LeitnerLaw will be pleased to assist you in the implementation of any national and international M&A transaction, be it the intended sale of a company or the acquisition of a shareholding, or investments, mergers or the establishment of joint ventures. We provide you with comprehensive support from the setting up of the optimal transaction structure, through the execution of due diligence reviews (legal and, together with our cooperation partner LeitnerLeitner, also tax and financial), the negotiation of contracts, to the conclusion and implementation of your M&A transaction and beyond.

We also advise you on all types of corporate reorganizations, such as mergers, demergers, conversions, contributions, combinations, divisions of ownership, accruals or form-changing conversions, both nationally and internationally. “Merger agreement”, “majorities for resolutions” or “pre-merger certificates” are only some of the requirements that have to be met in the context of reorganizations. To ensure that these formalities do not become a stumbling block, we actively assist you in the legal execution and implementation of all forms of reorganizations. Thanks to our extensive experience and our close cooperation with LeitnerLeitner, we also provide you with the answers and solutions to the tax and accounting issues associated with the respective reorganization.
