Corporate | M&A

Hamilton’s Corporate | M&A prac­tice has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in struc­tur­ing and im­ple­ment­ing all types of M&A transactions, both do­mes­tic and cross-bor­der. The lawyers in the Corporate | M&A team have sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence from var­i­ous busi­ness sec­tors and as­sist clients in draft­ing and ne­go­ti­at­ing a va­ri­ety of trans­ac­tion doc­u­men­ta­tion and com­mer­cial agree­ments. The Corporate | M&A team is en­gaged by pri­vate eq­ui­ty and ven­ture cap­i­tal spon­sors, en­tre­pre­neur­ial com­pa­nies, list­ed and un­list­ed cor­po­rates, star­tups as well as banks and oth­er fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions.

Hamilton’s lawyers have a deep and thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of M&A trans­ac­tions, and pro­vide ex­per­tise on strate­gic and struc­tur­al mat­ters, in a cost-ef­fi­cient and so­lu­tion-ori­ent­ed man­ner.

Hamilton ad­vis­es clients on all M&A-transactions, in­clud­ing:

  • Bilateral ac­qui­si­tions and di­vest­ments of shares and busi­ness­es
  • Auction process­es
  • Mergers
  • Joint ven­tures
  • Incentive pro­grammes
  • Due dili­gence
  • Structuring and im­ple­men­ta­tion of re­cap­i­tal­i­sa­tions and re­struc­tur­ings
  • M&A in­sur­ance
  • Shareholders’ agree­ments
  • Special ex­am­i­na­tions
  • Commercial agree­ments

In or­der to pro­vide clients with ad­vice on all le­gal as­pects of an M&A trans­ac­tion, the Corporate | M&A prac­tice works close­ly to­geth­er with Hamilton’s oth­er prac­tices.

The prac­tice in­cludes sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence from in­ter­na­tion­al law firms and has well es­tab­lished con­tacts with lead­ing fi­nan­cial and le­gal ad­vi­sors in Europe, the United States, Asia and oth­er re­gions. This al­lows for­ma­tion of trans­ac­tion teams and co­op­er­a­tion with lead­ing ad­vi­sors on cross-bor­der trans­ac­tions.
