Cross border M&A has accelerated with the globalization of financial markets and the relaxing of foreign investment policies. However, there must be a win-win for both the foreign and domestic parties for the partnership to succeed.
Our team of M&A attorneys understands the importance of both sides benefiting from the relationship and regularly advises global companies on the purchase, sale, and merger of public and privately-owned businesses in complex cross-border transactions. Whether it is a joint venture, licensing agreement, secured financing, leveraged buy-out, or bankruptcy sale and purchase, we provide practical advice at each phase of these transactions. We are adept at guiding clients through the regulatory compliance maze, including government approval processes, antitrust, license and permit requirements, foreign exchange controls and taxation, and concessions.
We’ve advised on hundreds of transactions around the world, representing investment bankers, boards of directors, special committees, private equity firms, lenders, and financial advisers. Our global platform and international capabilities allow us to structure, negotiate, and execute transactions eﬀectively and eﬃciently regardless of the jurisdictions involved. We take a multidisciplinary approach across areas that can impact cross-border M&A such as intellectual property, antitrust, international trade, litigation, tax, employment and benefits, finance and banking, real estate, environmental, and securities.
