Mergers & Acquisitions
We bring your transaction to a successful completion
We advise and support buyers and sellers at all stages of M&A transactions: from preparation of a bid or term sheet to negotiation of final documentation, signing and completion of the deal. We advise on the full range of deal structures from acquisitions, divestments through to auctions, private equity, venture capital and (legal) demergers.
Our proven track record in the field of M&A, expertise and (local) knowledge ensure that we deliver cost-effective, high quality legal advice. Our team of lawyers, civil law notaries and legal consultants across the global EY Law network employ a common approach, which means we can handle cross-border deals effectively.
We are dealmakers who understand your business. Not the legal analysis, but the best possible solution is the determining factor. Working with an entrepreneurial mentality, we strive for win-win situations. We are quick-minded and are able to think creatively with our clients.
We understand the financial parameters of a deal, have experience with tax structuring and have affinity with the ratios required by the bank with regard to financing. This combination of skills is not an obvious one and it is what distinguishes us from the rest.
Where possible we work with multidisciplinary teams of experts. On many assignments, our lawyers and civil law notaries work together with specialists from the EY Law network. This multidisciplinary approach of lawyers, tax specialists and financial experts is unique and has proven its worth for several decades already.

This procedure must offer employees safeguards that will protect them when submitting an internal report to their employer about a (suspicion of) misconduct.
