Mergers & Acquisitions

One of our main areas of focus is in the area of M&A transactions, with emphasis on stock and business acquisitions, corporate restructurings, and the creation of joint ventures.
We represent purchasers, sellers, and target companies in a wide range of domestic and cross-border transactions, including:
  • Acquisitions of majority and minority stakes
  • Sales and purchases of entire businesses or business divisions
  • Joint ventures
  • Statutory mergers
  • Spin offs
  • Restructurings and divestitures
  • Shareholder arrangements, including effective put and call option “exit” schemes
Our practice covers all phases of the transaction, including:
  • Assisting in deal structuring, advising boards of directors and working with the management on business and strategic aspects of the deal;
  • Negotiating and drafting agreements;
  • Conducting legal due diligence reviews and assisting target companies in the preparation of due diligence disclosures;
  • Advising on corporate governance issues;
  • Submitting merger applications and requests for exemptions from restrictive practices to the Antitrust Authority;
  • Assisting in the preparation of appropriate regulatory filings; and
  • Obtaining pre-closing regulatory approvals.
We believe in setting the tone and driving the deal forward. Where needed, we assist our clients in obtaining the best possible legal support from foreign counsel.
