Our field

Mergers & Acquisitions

Each merger or acquisition – but also each demerger – is unique and has its own dynamics. Although we are familiar with the legal agreements based on our experience, every entrepreneur and every company has its own interest in such a process.

The acquisition of a strategic partner to get a grip on the chain has different interests than the sale of a family business to an investor. A demerger because of a dispute is different from a demerger that makes it possible to set up an international branch. However, in every process it is important that your legal and strategic assistance ensures that you make optimum use of opportunities. And only run the risks you are willing to take.

Legal advice on mergers & acquisitions

Our team of lawyers is well versed in the world of mergers and acquisitions, and realises that no two processes are the same. That is why we pay personal attention to all those involved in each process. Is it the first and perhaps the only time you are going through this process? Then we will pay additional attention. Even if you purchase from a less experienced party, we will ensure that this party can participate in the entire process to make the transaction a success.

We have extensive national and international experience in:

  • acquisitions
  • mergers
  • demergers
  • liquidation and transfer of civil law and general partnerships

In these processes, we of course use our knowledge and experience from disputes and proceedings in our advice, also for the Commercial Chamber. After all, prevention is always better than cure.

We advise both buying and selling entrepreneurs. During this process, we often work together with accountants, corporate finance specialists, tax specialists and civil-law notaries. After all, every transaction benefits from proper process management and avoiding repeated tasks. Therefore, our lawyers are trained in project management and communication.

International mergers and acquisitions

Through our international network Consulegis, among other networks, we are often involved in international transactions and in transactions involving international interests. This could involve a foreign party that buys or sells, but also Dutch sellers with foreign subsidiaries. It could also involve transactions in which the selling party often works with foreign contracts. Involving our international colleagues in such transactions allows us to perfectly handle such transactions. This requires a good understanding of the English language.

Full service provision

Mergers and acquisitions often involve legal issues that overlap with the fields of Labour Law, Tenancy Law and Intellectual Property. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in these specialist fields. Where necessary, we make use of this specific knowledge. This ensures you will receive a full range of services.
