Corporate|M&A

We advise Austrian and international companies in all areas of corporate and company law.

As part of our corporate law practice, we provide support in the design and implementation of holding structures, the formation and dissolution of companies, issues relating to management and supervisory bodies, shareholder disputes and the negotiation and implementation of complex contracts.

Our expertise also includes all aspects of national and cross-border reorganizations and restructurings of companies, in particular carve-out transactions, post-merger integration as well as local and cross-border mergers, transformations, and demergers. In such transactions, we work in an interdisciplinary manner in close cooperation with the Deloitte Tax team and our colleagues from the global Deloitte Legal network.

In addition, we support our clients in all matters relating to compliance with applicable corporate governance and compliance management systems.

M&A

We have many years of experience in advising on national and cross-border M&A, private equity and venture capital transactions in various business and industrial sectors. Our ongoing activities include setting up structured transaction processes, conducting due diligence reviews, drafting, and negotiating company purchase agreements and supporting post-merger integration processes.

We regularly advise national and international financial investors and family offices on private equity investments, co-investments, financing rounds, management participation programs and exit transactions as well as venture capital investors and start-up companies from the establishment and structuring of tailor-made investment models to further financing rounds and exits.

Our day-to-day business also includes advising clients from a wide range of industries on national and cross-border joint ventures, strategic partnerships, and minority shareholdings. In planning and structuring, we work on an interdisciplinary basis in close coordination with the Deloitte Tax and Corporate Finance teams and our colleagues from the global Deloitte Legal network.

We also provide support for end-to-end post-merger integration processes, both before and after closing, in close interdisciplinary coordination with Deloitte experts.
