Mergers and acquisitions

The Mergers and Acquisitions department consists of lawyers and civil-law notaries who specialise in the legal guidance and completion of mergers and acquisitions. Buying or selling a business is a complex process, in which the input of a legal expert is essential. As specialists in this field, we guide your transaction from start to finish: from the letter of intent to the notarial transfer of shares. Civil-law notaries and lawyers work together closely during this process. In the case of acquisitions, the lawyer will mainly represent your interests as the buyer or seller. In the case of a merger, the civil-law notary will act as your impartial advisor. The civil-law notary is also a practical consultation partner for your accountant or tax consultant. We also assist you with legal advice relating to financial legislation. For instance, the WC’s right to prior consultation or the reporting of transactions to the NMa. Our specialist department acts for medium-sized and large (national and international) businesses, including many multinationals.

These are just some of the aspects that we can take care of for you:

  • Drafting a letter of intent
  • Due diligence: preparation, coordination and execution
  • Negotiations with the buyer/seller
  • Legal advice relating to legislation
  • Drafting a purchase contract and other contracts
  • Transfer of shares

Private Equity

Are you considering a private investment in an unlisted company? We also have the necessary in-house expertise in the highly specialised Private Equity field. We frequently act as legal advisor to venture capital companies and venture capitalists.

Advice without limit

If you have a cross-border case, we can also be of service to you abroad. Dirkzwager is a member of TELFA, a European alliance of medium-sized, highly qualified firms. And thanks to the connection with the American network USLAW, we also have direct lines to colleagues in the US.

Pooling of knowledge

Where necessary, we pool our knowledge with that of other disciplines within our office, like employment law or commercial property. A wide range of fields of law are represented in our office. Your fixed contact person will, of course, still be your reliable contact.
