M&A and private equity

Corporate activity has reached high levels in recent years. When you're looking to deliver your business strategy though activities such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and investment, you need advice that's technically sound, risk-aware and, in many cases, relevant to multiple jurisdictions.

At Gowling WLG, we have immense experience of handling these issues for our clients. Our corporate team consists of lawyers who cover all areas of M&A, venture capital and private equity, from big projects to day-to-day challenges.

Our typical approach involves getting familiar with your unique work environment and corporate culture, and then finding innovative solutions that are aligned with your vision. Whatever your needs, we'll help you research and negotiate with industrial or financial partners, and work with you to implement strategies that are optimised for success.

Full service

We cover all areas of M&A, assisting with negotiations and liaising with purchasers and sellers, administrative and supervisory authorities, financial and corporate partners, and carrying out full-service legal work for French and cross-border deals. Our team is backed by other specialists from both our Paris office and our other locations around the world.

Our lawyers have regularly advised on listed securities issues, public to private transactions and flotations, either on the company or sponsor side. When it comes to private equity, we provide legal advice on all aspects of transactions on a daily basis.
