Objective: to legally ensure that the acquisition meets the target expected by client.

The law office in the field of mergers and acquisitions performs legal and other actions related to the structural changes of the clients. This follows a thorough analysis of the relevant facts based on which the client determines the best alternative to achieve the specific objective pursued by them.

Legal services in the acquisition process involve mainly the preparation of legal documents for transfer of business or part of business, the transfer of ownership interests in legal entities (shares, funds or member shares), as well as mergers, divisions and acquisitions of companies, including cross-border mergers in the legal area of the European Union (see also section Legal services - Contract law).

In the context of legal services the law firm also provides proposals for internal optimization (reorganization) of companies in order to rationalize their operations, in particular the creation of a holding structure which provides several legal benefits, elimination of a number of risks and creates an overview of the economic flows within the holding (see also section Legal services - Corporate law).

Last but not least, the law firm provides legal services to investors entering the company in crisis (company in debt, insolvent company or companies at risk),

so as to minimize the associated risks for the investor, for example in relation to the existing creditors of a crisis company (see also Legal services section – Restructuring).

The law firm's technical equipment allows it to perform the majority of their dealings with public authorities (e.g. trade register) in electronic form, reducing the legal and administrative costs compared to using the postal service and that also shortens the time-limit for acts from the court.

Since the acquisition process generally requires comprehensive expertise in various areas, the law firm, with the consent of the client, consults the procedures with an expert, an auditing organization and other advisory organizations with years of experience in the field.
