In Germany, we are represented by more than 250 lawyers. Our team of corporate and M&A experts has many years of experience in advising on domestic and cross-border private equity and venture capital transactions, particularly those related to high technology. Our clients include innovative start-ups, later stage growth companies as well as experienced business angels, private equity and venture capital funds, corporate venture capital investors, incubators, accelerators and financing platforms.
Our advice covers the entire spectrum of a typical investment and ranges from the start-up phase to venture capital financing rounds, venture loans, acquisitions or joint ventures, all the way to the exit — be it in the context of an M&A transaction, a secondary buyout or IPO. With cross-divisional teams, we also cover the industry-specific requirements of a transaction from a single source, including in the areas of data protection, IP, software, regulation, tax and employment law. For investors and target companies, we offer advanced advice on private equity issues such as management buy-outs and leveraged buy-outs, senior and mezzanine financing as well as management participation programs. We assist our clients in all aspects of the transaction, from the investment to the restructuring and reorganization of the company to the exit through trade sale, refinancing or IPO.
