Public M&A

GLNS regularly advises bidders, target companies and board members on public takeover processes and on the defence against hostile public takeover bids. This is one of our core competences. We also assist our clients in other special situations, such as shareholder activism and investor activism. In doing so, we not only answer all legal questions from the areas of corporate, stock corporation and capital markets law, but also from the area of tax law. Our teams work together across disciplines so that we can provide comprehensive and seamless support for complex mandates.
