Mergers & Acquisitions has always been one of the core practices of ETERNA LAW. We believe that every acquisition is unique. Therefore, each transaction requires special attention, separate analysis and structuring. The role of attorney should be not to “over legalize” the country-specific risks, but rather to focus on legally and commercially material issues in order to secure the value of the assets and decrease the potential liability of the client.

Our services among others include:

  • Negotiations support
  • Structuring advice and tax analysis
  • Due diligence and Vendor Due Diligence
  • Pre-acquisition restructuring, tax planning and risk mitigation
  • Advising on regulatory and licensing matters
  • Obtaining necessary regulatory approvals (competition merger clearances, National Bank of Ukraine approvals)
  • Cross-border and in-country transactions support
  • Drafting transactional documents (sale-purchase agreements, shareholders agreements, escrow agreements) including under US law or English law (with co-counsels)
  • Closing and financing support
  • Post-acquisition and integration support
  • Shareholders and other post-sale dispute resolution
