M&A & Investments

During my more than 25 years of practice, I have been in charge of the legal advice in a significant number of domestic and cross-border M&A transactions for industrial customers as well as private equity firms and other investors. I have advised customers on corporate law issues including different types of solvent restructuring and reorganisations. I have vast experience in taking a lead role in different types of commercial projects, for example in relation to the supply of industrial equipment and systems. I am responsible for the firm’s legal advice to a number of medium-sized and larger companies on the overall legal aspects of their businesses, working closely with management on strategic as well as day-to-day matters.
