Mergers & Acquisitions - Corporate Law

Presentation

Complex M&A transactions and reorganisations are strategic events in the life of a company. Their success depends on the expertise of those involved.

Racine’s Corporate/M&A team is made up of lawyers who are each closely familiar with the technical aspects involved in these high value-added transactions.

The team advises companies both French and foreign entities, investment funds and management teams on their strategic transactions.

Racine assists its clients with the full range of issues they encounter in company operations, the financing of their development, external growth transactions and transfers, both in France and on an international level.

The team works hand in hand with the firm’s other teams so that it can offer comprehensive solutions that cover all relevant practice areas (tax, employment, distressed company law, banking and finance, competition, etc.).

In parallel, the team constantly strives to ensure that that it acquires and maintains deep know-how about its clients’ businesses and industries.

Armed with its experience in court and arbitral proceedings, the team also handles all types of disputes relating to corporate and financial markets law, and in particular disputes between shareholders and the enforcement of indemnities.
