Mergers & Acquisitions

default bannerv3

When it comes to Mergers & Acquisitions, our team starts off by carrying out a thorough due diligence process which should be commenced as early as possible in the transaction in order to identify and tackle the major issues and any potential pitfalls which one may encounter throughout the transaction from the onset. This will have a considerable bearing on the structure of the transaction, terms and warranties. Generally, legal due diligence is conducted in parallel with financial due diligence as the legal due diligence may serve well as a check on the conclusions of the financial due diligence.

At Chetcuti Cauchi, we offer advice in the area of mergers & acquisitions, representing buyers, sellers, investment bankers, and lenders in connection with various types of acquisition transactions.

Our Mergers & Acquisitions clients range from small privately held businesses to multinational companies. We offer our Merger & Acquisitions services to a whole range of different industries, including financial services, medical devices, manufacturing, software and technology, new economy businesses, pharmaceuticals, professional services, publishing, and professional sports.

We offer counsel throughout complex transactions, including mergers, sales and purchases of shares and assets, tender offerings, exchange offers and leveraged buy-outs. Our representation of sellers has often involved the representation of special independent committees of directors in acquisitions in which the management of a corporation may be viewed to have a conflict of interest. Similarly, our representation of buyers has often involved the representation of management or a management-led group of financial buyers.

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with any kind of transaction of this nature. We have been involved in transactions that have been both friendly and hostile, that have involved foreign and domestic participants, and that have employed a myriad of acquisition structures and forms of consideration. Our lawyers who are specialised and have a wide breadth of experience in Mergers & Acquisitions are also seasoned corporate lawyers who are fully equipped to advise on governance, securities, regulation, finance and the other corporate disciplines important to the successful completion of any transaction.

Mergers & Acquisitions of Private Companies

We offer our services to facilitate transactions which involve private or family held businesses which are an important part of our practice. While such transactions may not always make the headlines, we are well aware that they are of vital importance to the companies and the people involved. Throughout the years we have gained a wealth of experience in representing these businesses, as well as in representing private equity buyout firms and debt and equity investors. Our multi-disciplinary team has gained broad experience which allows us to take a holistic approach to these transactions which is often crucial, particularly when one or both companies may have never been through the acquisition process before.

Interdisciplinary Approach

What distinguishes our firm is our commitment to being a diversified law firm that offers coordinated, all-encompassing services which cater for all our clients' needs in the most efficient way possible. Our Mergers & Acquisitions clients can benefit from our expertise as we guide them through their complex transactions. Our Mergers & Acquisitions lawyers coordinate the representation of buyer or seller while working hand in hand with lawyers from Chetcuti Cauchi's other practice groups to provide critical support for today's complex transactions. Thus, we also offer advice in other areas, including tax, antitrust and competition, real estate, banking , financial services, and litigation.
