M&A

Our team of experienced M&A lawyers advises on a broad range of cross-border transactions, including public and private take-overs, management buy-outs, and corporate divestments, as well as joint ventures and strategic alliances.
Thanks to our strong focus on in- and out-bound investments between German speaking countries and Japan for more than twenty years, we have a long track record of successfully completed transactions, involving many well-known public and private companies on both sides.
Our professionals cover the whole range of transactional legal services, whether on the seller- or buyer-side, also providing continuous deal management to securely guide the investor through all steps of any given transaction:

  • Comprehensive deal preparation (assistance in the auction process, preparation of letter of intent and non-disclosure agreement, organization of due diligence data room, assistance in Q&A process etc.);
  • Full scope or limited legal due diligence as required, including bankable due diligence report;
  • Negotiation, conception and drafting of share or asset purchase agreements as well as all other transaction documents;
  • Tender offer, squeeze-out as well as going public or delisting procedures;
  • Assistance in the closing process as well as post-closing integration measures.
  • Handling of foreign direct investment control and multijurisdictional merger control proceedings.

Due to our close collaboration with highly qualified local experts in major jurisdictions in Asia and across the globe, we have a network of partners best fitted to manage a deal on a multinational scale.

Acting as our client’s single point of contact to collect the relevant information from all fields of legal expertise concerned and closely coordinating the transaction with other advisors involved, we continuously strive to achieve the best results for our client in a time and cost-efficient manner.

 

Commercial Law

Legal know-how? Or commercial insights? ARQIS unites both.

That’s how we are able to view transactions from our clients’ perspective: the business one.

We are covering a broad range of commercial transactions and advise on domestic and cross-border legal issues across various industry sectors, whether on a project or ongoing basis or for a long-term strategic investment.

Our team of experienced commercial lawyers regularly deals with various types of purchase agreements, general terms and conditions of sale, toll manufacturing and supply agreements, e-commerce transactions, agency service and license agreements, as well as framework supply contracts and other types of commercial documents.

Distribution agreements are a cornerstone of our commercial practice and, due to their legal complexity in particular when winding-up such relationships, are supervised by a team of well-versed practitioners in this field.
