A successful merger or acquisition can add considerable value to an existing business. To make an M&A deal successful, each party needs to be diligent at each step of the deal process — from due diligence and pre-integration analysis, to negotiations and closing. Achieving this requires extensive experience, profound expertise and a thorough business approach.
We are a full-service law firm providing our clients with complete access to the diverse expertise and resources in M&A deals that our local and international network can offer.
We offer a full range of legal advice for the deal structuring and negotiations processes and also provide tax, financial and business assurance support, along with other advisory capabilities covering acquisitions, disposals, private equity, strategic M&A advice, advice on listed company transactions, financing and public/private partnerships. We’re also able to deploy experienced, full-scope deal teams — combining deep industry knowledge with local market expertise — anywhere and everywhere your company operates.
Although the acquisition or sale of a gold mining company may not differ significantly from that of an FMCG business in terms of the transaction processes and documentation, in all our M&A engagements, we make sure that the right specialists are called in to handle industry-specific issues. Our professional approach to M&A deals is driven primarily by the need to understand business realities and the environment in which the deal takes place. This also means being very familiar with industry practices and trends, applicable regulatory processes and typical issues that may arise during a transaction in a specific industry.
