Mergers & Acquisitions
Successful mergers are based upon a deep understanding of industry dynamics, the nature of the merging entities and well thought-out integration plans. In today’s globalized world, many deals occur cross-border and call for multi jurisdictional coordination. A clear understanding of specific legislative requirements and commercial issues in the respective countries is required. Accutor’s Legal team assists companies with designing suitable structures for the transaction, jurisdiction choice, identification of legal issues arising as a result of a merger, review of contracts that could be affected by the merger, drafting of documentation for the formalization and execution of the transaction, amongst others.
Our Tax, Legal Consulting, Accounting and Financial Advisory teams work in close cooperation in multiple jurisdictions to address complexities and provide a clear, comprehensive and compliant approach for a successful M&A procedure. We are well qualified to assist with national and cross-border mergers in a variety of industries.

• We can advise and implement any necessary restructuring or carve-outs, once again leveraging the expertise across our network – legal, commercial and financial.
