Cross-Border M&A

We provide comprehensive support of M&A transactions and equity participation projects. We support M&A and equity participation projects by listening to our clients' needs through a preliminary survey and our M&A professional advisers then make contact with the target company without identifying our client's company. In order to conduct M&A transactions successfully, we plan and propose effective processes for investigating the target company. Once the agreement of the M&A transaction or the equity participation project is reached with the target company, we support our client through to the conclusion of the contract. After the acquisition, we also provide extensive advisory services for the successful business operations of the new company.
