Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Due Diligence

For a number of years Codex Advokater’s M&A department have participated in a considerable number of transfers of business of both small, medium-sized and large companies.

Our objective is to give holistic advice in connection with the transfer of business, comprising both the preliminary preparations and negotiation of the completion of the transfer of business as well as advice on and planning of the process. It is our experience that both the commercial and the legal advice in respect of the transfer of business together with a focused control of the process is a decisive parameter of a successful transfer of business.

Typically, a transfer of business involves many types of players on the part of both the buyer and the seller as well as accountants, banks etc. Accordingly, our role is – besides ensuring the legal elements of a transfer of business – to be a facilitator and plan the process and communication with the involved parties and in this way ensure the most optimum process.

Our advice within M&A include the classic elements, such as:

  • Purchase and sale of companies
  • Mergers, demergers and reconstructions
  • Advice to venture companies, including joint ventures
  • Management buy-out
  • Advice on M&A in emergencies, such as i.a. liquidation and reconstruction etc.
  • Planning and completion of due diligence

We have a considerable network of foreign lawyers and other advisers assisting us in connection with international transfers of business, or in cases where the transfer of business includes subsidiaries or associated companies abroad.

Our clients include both Danish and international, industrial and financial companies as well as venture companies and investment companies.
