Acquisitions and Divestitures

Be it private or public, buy or sell—we provide strategic legal advice designed to ensure smooth, seamless transactions, even on the tightest of closing deadlines.

Whether your transaction is large, small, cross-border or spans multiple jurisdictions, we apply the same rigour, creativity and technical expertise. Our creative approach and top-tier expertise permit us to seamlessly execute deals of any level of complexity seamlessly.

To ensure that the deal closes, we adopt a lean and commercially minded approach by:

  • Preparing well-crafted pre-acquisition documents that protect your interest at the offer stage (such as letters of intent and non-disclosure agreements)
  • Structuring a deal that best addresses your specific needs (whether it be a leveraged buyout, management buyout, private equity transaction, distressed transaction or otherwise)
  • Evaluating risks and providing direction in the due diligence process
  • Working with your tax advisors and other professional consultants to create tax-efficient structures
  • Completing all transaction agreements in a timely and efficient manner including asset and share purchase agreements
