Mergers and Acquisitions
In the dynamic and progressive post soviet Latvian economy the area of mergers & acquisitions is taking an ever increasing part of our law practice. We are experienced in handling comprehensive legal due diligence, designing legally efficient transactional structures in view of local regulatory and tax considerations, drafting and negotiating of transactional documentation, advising and representing on related regulatory matters such as securities, competition and environmental law requirements and submissions to respective regulators. Our lawyers are handling sophisticated and large transactions involving foreign debt and equity investments, as well as the sale of interest in public and private companies working in crucial sectors of Latvian economy, such as energy, communications, public works infrastructure, food production and financial services. We have also regulatory and judicial experience in the transactional context, for example, in relation to the mandatory buy-out of minority shareholders and the protection of creditors’ interests in corporate reorganisations.
