Corporate and M & A.
Our firm has earned a high reputation as one of the top M&A advisors in Austria. Over the years, we have had the privilege of representing as lead counsel some of the largest international enterprises in acquisitions in Austria and throughout Central and Eastern Europe.
Our corporate department handles a wide variety of business issues for our clients and works in highly integrated teams. For structuring cross-border transactions, we work on a continuous basis hand in hand with the investment advisors and the accounting firms. Based on our philosophy that understanding our clients’ business is a prerequisite for successful advisory work, we stay current with not only the legal issues facing our transactional clients, but also broader business and strategic considerations. Agreements often contain complex formulas for the calculation of the purchase price which eventually will be acceptable to both parties concerned. We have gained special expertise and know-how in drafting such complex purchase price formulas and regularly assist our clients in negotiating the purchase price determination to their advantage. We are familiar with purchase price calculations based inter alia upon the earning capability of the enterprise, the company’s debt structure and the liquidity available.
