Mergers & Acqisitions

Mergers & acquisitions make up a significant proportion of our services. This area of law covers the takeover of U.S. companies and the acquisition of shares in existing companies.

It requires the clarification of very specific legal matters, especially if the U.S. company is to be acquired by a German or European parent company. Matters relating to tax law and employment law will automatically arise, as will the nature and extent of possible capitalization and the significance of different forms of U.S. companies (to what degree they are internationally compatible and suited for mergers).
