Our clients are leading foreign and domestic investors from the private and public sectors. The M&A transaction team includes advocates, legal counsels and tax advisors with many years of practical experience gained during the implementation of numerous prestigious M&A transactions of international, national and local scope. In order to provide a professional level of service, we create for each transaction the dedicated team of attorneys, legal counsels and tax advisors, composed of specialists in these areas of law, which will have the widest application in the implementation of a given transaction. Thanks to this approach to the implementation of the transaction, clients receive full substantive support ensuring legal and tax security of the transaction.
We provide legal assistance both to sellers and buyers in every phase of the transaction, regardless of its type (buy-out transactions, direct investments, joint-venture projects, etc.). We make every effort to ensure that the proposed solutions are as effective as possible from the point of view of our clients' business objectives and the cost effectiveness of the transaction. In everyday communication with clients, we focus on business language, not legal one, so that it is understandable and transparent.
