Public Takeovers

We are Stibbe Public Takeovers specialists

With experience in many public takeover bids such as voluntary, compulsory, hostile, and squeeze-outs, we provide the pragmatic, commercially focused guidance our clients require.

Public Takeovers

As a market leader in public takeovers, we assist clients with some of the most complex matters in the Benelux.

Acting on behalf of targets, bidders, directors, shareholders and financial advisors on both national and cross-border deals, we handle various obligations arising from corporate and securities law as well as from a corporate governance perspective.

Key aspects of our expertise include advising on how to handle both hostile and friendly approaches, negotiations, due diligence requests, risks of insider trading and the demands of competing offers.

Through our experience in advising both sides of public takeovers, we assist with the reactions of shareholders, supervisory boards and management boards. This enables them to navigate any public offer situation with the desired outcome.

When management is involved in the proposed takeover of the company, we have considerable experience in advising on all aspects of the ‘public to private’ process. This often includes special considerations that are particular for going private transactions.
