Corporate/M&A

CorporateWe assist you in creating your company and at each step of its development, in its daily and occasional operations, and ending with its winding-up or disposal. We also help organise relations between partners, particularly in the case of a partners’ agreement.

We assist you in equity capital transactions and with the design and conduct of your structural plans, such as disposals or acquisitions of companies, purchases of shareholdings and assets, fund raising and establishment of management packages.

We also rely on our contacts, attorneys and certified accounts in the MSI network for any international operations.

We work by your side to anticipate and manage crisis situations, in an advisory capacity and in conducting litigation in the event of conflicts between partners, claims of Management liability, applications of asset/liability guarantees or pre and post-acquisition disputes.
