Buying a German Company

If you consider buying or merging with a German company or stock corporation (see checklist here), we can either structure and manage the entire acquisition process for you or merely assist with specific tasks like due diligence (e.g. financial, legal, business, IT) or contract negotiation. Our team of lawyers, financial and business experts has extensive experience with international M&A projects in various industry sectors. We will always keep matters as simple and straight forward as possible.

If the potential buyer does not want to be identified, we can provide trustworthy professionals that act as trustees and acquire the company shares on the buyer‘s behalf. Fully compliant, of course, with all laws and regulations of Germany and the European Union. For non-legal work, we do recommend the service provider Friendly Germans Ltd. The British-German Consultancy Firm.
