Mergers & Acquisitions
Our lawyers regularly represent buyers, target companies, investment bankers, controlling shareholders, financial advisers, management investors, lenders and other institutional investors in M&A transactions involving PRC interests.
We represent strategic and financial investors with respect to their M&A activities in China, spanning a broad spectrum of sectors and industries, including without limitation, traditional manufacturing, food and brewing, general consumers, chemicals, real estate, telecommunications, mineral resources, commercial chains, education, hi-tech, network, movies and TV media, medical devices, marine fishing, ships, electric power, banking, insurance, trust investments, guarantee and other financial areas. We also represent international and domestic companies on the seller side with respect to such transactions. In addition, we frequently act as counsel to investment bankers on transactions where they are engaged as financial advisors for target companies or acquirors. Our in-depth industry knowledge and familiarity with the ever-changing Chinese laws and practice enable us to come up with creative and novel deal structures for our clients often in seemingly impossible situations.
Our lawyers have worked extensively in all major types of M&A deals, including domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, acquisitions as part of privatizations, tender offers, negotiated acquisitions and divestitures, leveraged buyouts, acquisitions of distressed assets, and purchases, sales and spin-offs of parts of businesses. We are capable of providing comprehensive legal services to parties involved in various types of M&A transactions, including, among others, preliminary legal feasibility analysis, preparation of letter of intent and term sheet, legal due diligence, deal structuring, documentation, negotiation and assistance with execution of transaction documents, verification of closing matters, assistance in approval processes, and supervision on performance of post-closing obligations, so as to ensure the lawful, effective and smooth consummation of the relevant M&A transactions.
A significant portion of our M&A mandates involves advising on transactions ranging from acquisitions of large-scale PRC state-owned enterprises, anti-monopoly filings, information disclosure of public companies, privatization transactions, significant minority investments, to financing spin-offs and recapitalizations. Our lawyers also frequently advise major corporations in M&A activities involving financial services industry.
