Mergers and Acquisitions

We are Stibbe Mergers and Acquisitions specialists

Through our cross-practice approach, we handle every domestic and international merger and acquisition transaction with pragmatism and efficiency.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We are one of the leading merger and acquisition law firms in private and public transactions in the Benelux, providing a genuine full-service M&A offering.

Our international reach, expertise and comprehensive service enable us to assist global corporations and financial institutions in their role as sellers, purchasers or lenders with the entire spectrum of sophisticated M&A considerations and transactions. As such, we act on headline public takeovers, mergers and acquisitions of listed or private companies, privatisations, joint ventures, buyouts, divestments, auctions and tender offers.

As a single M&A matter often requires expertise drawn from competition, intellectual property, tax, employment and environment, our lawyers interact extensively with colleagues from these areas. This approach ensures every case, whether domestic or cross-border, is handled in the most coordinated and responsive manner. 

A key element of our practice is the support of a strong acquisition finance team with the capacity and expertise to offer clients a full package of transaction, acquisition finance and structured finance services.
