Mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, partnerships and listing on stock markets are commonplace in building a business. These are often based on the people, financial results, jurisdiction, client base, opportunities and the reputation of a potential acquisition or third party. We focus on mitigating counterparty risk before a prospective deal, engagement or transaction is completed and helps clients avoid potentially costly mistakes.
We provide reliable insight into the backgrounds and reputation of these counterparties and examine the motivations of key individuals and management teams. This process will highlight potential risks and adverse information that will enable clients raise critical points for negotiation or resolution.
Our consultants can also assist with the review of material commercial contracts for change of control clauses; standard trading terms; shareholders agreements, articles of association and share option arrangements in relation to exit provisions and strategies; private company statutory books and compliance with Companies Act 2006.
