Mergers and acquisitions (M&A)

We have an experienced team counselling Danish and international clients on all aspects in connection with Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). To the extent necessary and subject to prior agreement with the client we involve external specialists for e.g. conducting a financial due diligence, environmental reviews etc. We carefully plan our use of resources in connection with the particular transaction to the effect that the final costs for the client match the transaction.

Legal due diligence is reported in a well-planned manner given you a good grasp of the legal aspects influencing the purchase price.

Our international network ensures that we can handle cross-border mergers and acquisitions.

Our advisory services on mergers and acquisions include i.a.:

  • Planning the process regarding the sale or purchase of a business
  • Setting up due diligence material for the seller, including operation and performance of data room activities
  • Implementation of legal due diligence for the purchaser
  • Establishment of a suitable corporate structure in connection with the purchase or sale of a company, taking taxation aspects into consideration
  • Preparation and negotiation of transfer agreement/share purchase agreement and shareholders’ agreement
  • Preparation of agreements on payment to management staff and incentive programmes, including the potential for optimising taxation
  • Closing (implementation) of a company transfer
