Mergers & Acquisitions
We regularly assist our clients in financing rounds and investment rounds, in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), in restructurings as well as in exits (LBO/MBO).
Our clients often are fast-growing companies financed through venture capital, private equity or debt financing, as well as entrepreneurs and company CEOs, cutting-edge corporations or local SMEs with an international presence or activity.
Our team worked on more than fifty transactions in the past three years only and is recognized for its efficiency and pragmatic approach, based on a rich cumulative experience (lectures at the university, conferences, publications) as well as an excellent market knowledge.
We were involved in numerous significant PE investments and VC exits in Switzerland (Jilion sold to DailyMotion, Composyt Light Labs sold to Intel, BugBuster sold to Appdynamics, Sensima Tech sold to Monolithic Power Systems, HouseTrip sold to Trip Advisor).
We provide active assistance to several foreign groups establishing a presence in Switzerland and Swiss companies expanding abroad (retail, food, consumer goods, luxury, watchmaking, online services, media, healthcare, IT services, financial services, security).
We advised the majority shareholders of an independent investment company, as the company underwent an important crisis, when it simultaneously faced a cross-border conflict with a nexus of companies it had financed and an internal dispute amongst the company’s founders, causing a blocking of the board and a conflict with subsidiaries of the company, threatening the survival of the group. We successfully advised the company and its majority shareholders on an internal level by reaching an agreement with the outgoing founder and fostering an important restructuring of the firm, as well as regarding the ongoing dispute with its subsidiaries.
