Mergers and acquisitions

Members of our team have been involved in significant mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions either locally, within Cyprus or Greece, or regionally extending beyond the boundaries of the jurisdictions where we operate offices.

We have expertise in all stages of M&A, including negotiations and the drafting of agreements and supporting instruments, tax advice on the specific transactions (including group re-structuring), legal due diligence and HR matters, as well as on matters of competition and antitrust law.

Our team advices on the full range of deal structures from public takeovers/tender offers through to divestments, auctions and demergers. Every such transaction demands the right structure, careful risk analysis and forward planning in order to ensure that the anticipated value of the deal is realised.

Our M&A practice is able to co-ordinate complex transactions successfully, address regulatory requirements, prepare loyal documentation advice on tax matters and assist in due-diligence negotiations.

Our team has extensive experience and expertise in drafting and negotiating acquisitions and disposals, business and onset purchase and sale agreements, closed and fund structuring and related acquisitions or exits, as well as public takeovers including making both unsolicited and recommended offers and defending unwelcome takeover bids.
