Mergers & Acquisitions

Are you considering buying or selling a company or investing in a Series A round? How would such a transaction be planned, implemented and financed? How would the intellectual property rights, environmental risks, and employment law issues be handled?

Wistrand assists both Swedish and international companies in their role as buyers, sellers or investors in connection with domestic and cross-border acquisitions, divestments and investments. We have a strong position as transaction advisor, and are constantly ranked as one of the leading Swedish law firms by Mergermarket, a global M&A analysis company, whose ranking charts depict the number of transactions completed.

A number of complex issues arise with a transaction. These are closely linked to the type of business being undertaken by the target company. Lawyers from other practice groups, such as employment, tax, banking and finance, IPR, environment, and competition, can be consulted if and when required. As a result, we can offer our clients pertinent and full service expertise for their transactions.

We provide advice in areas such as:
  • Share- and asset purchase agreements
  • Investment agreements
  • Joint ventures
  • Legal due diligence
  • Warranty & Indemnity (W&I) insurance
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Capital raisings
  • IPOs
  • Tender offers
  • Share issuance and other corporate law matters
  • Restructuring
