The opening of the market for new investments and participants as a consequence of the Croatian accession to the EU resulted in an increased number of companies being incorporated. At the same time, the existing market participants were put in the position where they needed to revise existing strategies, and search for synergy effects through joint ventures or mergers and acquisitions.
Mergers, corporate acquisitions, restructurings and joint ventures have always been important strategic options for corporations and private equity funds. Those transactions are generally considered to be the most complex transactions that market participants can undertake while conducting business. Keeping this in mind, we support our clients by advising them on the best and most efficient way of concluding transactions. Clients value our innovative approach and high degree of individualized attention.
Our team is well-known for its commitment, professional ethos, willingness to put in extra effort, and the ability to find solutions that simply work in all segments of a transaction.
We advise our clients in all aspects of their business, from strategic planning, drafting due diligence reports, structuring the transaction from a corporate and tax perspective, and negotiating purchase agreements, to monitoring completion of CPs and post-closing integration.
We are one of the leading legal teams at providing strategic advice to both buyers and sellers in restructuring transactions and transactions targeting distressed businesses.
Apart from typical M&A engagements, we regularly provide legal advice on acquisitions and the sale of companies’ assets. This often requires our Banking & Finance team to work closely with our M&A team and experts in other fields such as taxation, employment, competition, intellectual property, and real estate.
