Having gathered extensive experience from a large number of transactions, our consulting teams advise national and international clients on M&A and private equity transactions of every size.
Our economic understanding and our entrepreneurial, goal-oriented approach has been appreciated by large groups, medium-sized enterprises, financial investors, listed companies and start-ups for many years.


Alongside auditors, tax and business consultants, our lawyers work in interdisciplinary teams to ensure legal security and to optimize tax structures during the M&A process, at the same time covering all accounting and financial issues.

All team members – if required, together with external service providers such as notaries, environmental experts or patent attorneys – are centrally coordinated for you by a single contact person. For us, this is the prerequisite for best-quality consulting and the basis for superior negotiation, with the best results for our clients.

Furthermore, our consultancy services do not end with the closing date. We use our knowledge acquired during the transaction in order to provide customized legal and tax consultancy services for you and the target company even during the post-closing stage – both on a national and an international level.
