Mergers and Acquisitions

Commercial lawyers at Aequitas Legal have gained extensive experience from a broad range of both Maltese and EU cross border transactions. We represent buyers, sellers and lenders, investment bankers and venture capitalists on complex transactions. We believe in employing an enormous variety of deal structures within both friendly and hostile negotiations.

We are often involved right at the beginning of transactions ensuring the complete fulfilment of legal due diligence processes, and compliance throughout the contract drafting process. In order to maximise efficiency, legal due diligence processes can be carried out in tandem with financial due diligence which will be managed by a related duly certified public auditor. By working closely with the auditor we are able to iron out any potential problems early on and create appropriate structures to ensure that the transaction runs smoothly.

In addition to due diligence and contracts, our Mergers and Aquisitions (M&A) team have regular dealings with the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority, and as such are experienced and efficient in gaining merger control approvals, as well as making complaints to the relevant authorities, and pursuing legal actions regarding infringements. Our lawyers draw on a breadth of experience, both within the M&A team, and across the firm to deal with all aspects of the due diligence process including Competition & EU law, Tax, Employment Law and Property Law.

Certified public auditors and accountancy firms can manage Financial Due Diligence. By working closely together we are able to iron out any potential problems during the earlier stages and are able to create appropriate structures to ensure the entire transaction runs smoothly.
