Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Company acquisition or company merger?

Mergers and acquisitions (or M&A) are usually intensive and complex transactions that require a hands-on mentality from lawyers. It is important to pay attention to detail, but it is also important to think ahead and work in a process-oriented way.

Our M&A team has extensive experience in the field of mergers and acquisitions and is characterised by a practical and decisive approach. Depending on the size of the case, we work intensively with you individually or in teams to achieve the desired result. If necessary, we also involve (your) external advisors, such as notaries, accountants, tax specialists and/or corporate finance advisers.

Supervising a legal merger or acquisition

We supervise all legal aspects of a merger or acquisition, from beginning to end, from letter of intent to closing. We also conduct a due diligence investigation and report our findings.

Closely related to and regularly a consequence of M&A is the restructuring of a legal entity, company or group company. Our M&A team knows when it is necessary to reorganise the organisational relationship between legal entities or companies and is also your experienced sparring partner and advisor in this respect. Moreover, the knowledge of our employment law team means that Valegis Advocaten can also assist you from A to Z in the event of a reorganisation resulting from restructuring.
