Mergers & Acquisitions

If your company is involved in an acquisition process, you need professional assistance, whether you are the acquiring or the selling party. Our knowledge and experience make Conseiller your perfect partner in this area. You can rely on us throughout the entire process, so before, during, and after the merger or acquisition.

We help you in drafting or assessing the transaction documents and in the negotiations. An acquisition process involves a lot of paperwork, in which everything needs to be made clear, for now and in the future. On what conditions is the sale to be concluded, and what rights and obligations do the parties have towards each other once the transaction has been finalised? What must be included, and how is this included properly? This is where we can offer added value, as we have done this countless times before. Since each acquisition is unique, we like to get to know you and your business first, to ensure that we know exactly what we are talking about during the negotiations.

Are you considering acquiring a company? Then we will first conduct a due diligence investigation in which we thoroughly research the legal risks and liabilities of the company to be acquired. Based on this information, we can advise you on how to eliminate or mitigate these risks.

When preparing for a sale, we feel it is important to exchange ideas with you to make sure that all the legal details have been sorted out. If you are well prepared for an acquisition process, you can generally achieve a higher sale price. Minor deficiencies can often be easily rectified beforehand to ensure they are no longer an issue in negotiations. A potential purchaser will fully investigate your business before going ahead with the purchase. It makes a good impression if no unnecessary problems emerge during such an investigation that you could have easily resolved beforehand.

The same applies, of course, if you have just bought a company. We can help you after the purchase too, to get your legal procedures and structures in order. You will have carried out a full investigation into the company you have acquired, or we will have done that for you, and therefore you will know where the difficulties lie. Together we will decide which of these difficulties need to be dealt with first and how we will deal with them.
