Torsten

Lawyer, Partner, M&A

My passion is to lead an M&A transaction to success. Sometimes this requires finding complex legal solutions. But often the key is to bring the parties back together in an emotionally charged situation.

Mergers and Acquisitions

When acquiring or selling a company, we cover all legal, tax and financial aspects. Our integrated team of lawyers, tax advisors and auditors will accompany you to the successful conclusion and beyond.

Project Management

Whether buy side or sell side, we prepare a professional process to ensure the smoothest possible negotiation and execution of the M&A transaction.

Business Valuation

The valuation of a company is a key success factor right from the start of the process, where our many years of experience pay off. We are familiar with the relevant IDW standards (DCF and capitalized earnings method) as well as with the multiplier methods widely used in practice.

Due Diligence

Our lawyers, tax advisors and auditors offer one-stop services: 

  • Legal Due Diligence
  • Tax Due Diligence
  • Financial Due Diligence

In all three areas, we investigate and evaluate risks to the transaction. Identified risks from due diligence can then be reduced or eliminated through structuring measures even before the transaction is completed, or they can be taken into account in pricing or contract drafting. 

Negotiation  

Based on the company valuation and the results of the due diligence, we work with you to develop the negotiation strategy that best serves your interests.

Post Merger Integration 

  • Legal and tax integration includes, for example, adjustments under labor law, restructuring under company law, decision-making and compliance processes, general terms and conditions and other sample contracts, tax optimization in the area of transfer pricing, tax groups and compensation models for management and employees. 
  • In the case of international transactions, we provide support in the standardization of financial reporting in accordance with IFRS, US GAAP or even Japan GAAP. 
  • Our auditors accompany the realignment of the reporting process.
