We advise on all aspects of corporate law, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, privatisations, and corporate restructuring. We also assist clients in connection with corporate governance matters, including capital changes and share issues. We are well-versed in guiding clients through every step of an M&A transaction, whether they be a buyer, a seller, management or a financial or strategic adviser.
