We have built a global corporate and M&A platform comprised of lawyers that are both leading practitioners in their markets as well as experienced with cross-border transactions. The lawyers at Orrick advise on corporate transactions in Germany and abroad, and we have handled some of the most significant Germany corporate transactions in recent years.
Companies of various forms and structures comprise an important part of our corporate work, including traditional corporations (AG) and limited liability companies (GmbH). Our corporate legal solutions are designed to facilitate our clients' efforts to develop and grow their holdings and market positions. In the field of mergers and acquisitions, we assist clients with a broad commercial-oriented solution, starting with the strategic planning of an acquisition or sale, through due diligence examinations and negotiations, and continuing through closing. We prepare national and multinational takeovers, acquisitions and restructurings for domestic and international companies, mid-size businesses and their shareholders, and individual investors. In addition to providing transaction advice, our lawyers also advise a wide range of clients, including listed public companies, mid-size businesses, private, family-led organizations and venture-backed and start-up companies on traditional corporate law issues. Such advice includes corporate reorganizations and restructurings, the preparation and holding of general shareholders' meetings, and a wide range of special measures, including squeeze-outs.
