Acting for both the buyer and seller sides of various undertakings, our team has earned the respect of both peers and clients for its industry-specific capabilities, thorough documentation, and comprehensive analysis of issues that are critical to the transaction at hand. Our areas of expertise include cross-border and domestic M&A, joint ventures, equity investments and divestments, privitization and the acquisition of non-performing assets.
Meanwhile, our complete range of legal services in corporate and commercial law continues to provide the foundation for our collective transactional experience — from standard corporate housekeeping requirements to extensive due diligence work in relation to mergers and acquisitions, from simple contract drafting to the structuring of foreign investments, from registering a local business to obtaining government permits and qualifying clients for incentives and economic zone accreditations.
