Corporate and M&A

We are Stibbe Corporate and M&A specialists

Our specialists combine local knowledge with international expertise, creating practical solutions for the most complex issues.

Corporate and M&A

As a leading Benelux corporate law practice we handle a wide spectrum of corporate and transactional projects for both local and international clients, who we assist throughout the project.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of the areas of expertise we provide to multinationals, financial institutions, public and private companies, start-ups, private equity funds as well as state owned enterprises. 

We act on a wide variety of matters including mergers and acquisitions of listed or private companies, securities law and governance issues, disposals and corporate restructurings, leveraged buyouts, joint ventures, takeover defences and venture-capital transactions.

As transactional work often requires expertise drawn from across the firm such as environment, competition, labour, finance, real estate and tax, our multidisciplinary teams work closely with colleagues from these areas, providing integrated and effective legal advice. 

Cross-border transactions are handled through a platform of local experts. We work in close partnership with these firms ensuring high quality advice in each jurisdiction and uniform service around the globe.
