Mergers and Acquisitions

Few medium-sized law firms have a team with experience in hundreds of operations of purchases and sales at the national and international level, representing from multinationals to family-owned companies. Every process of merger or acquisition usually entails high doses of uncertainty that at JAUSAS, our M&A lawyers in Spain, try to delimit in order to get the most out of an operation.
Due diligence of the purchase and sale

Due diligence of the purchase and sale

Our intervention is centred on detecting the risks and contingencies that might impact the transaction, with the aim of avoiding the appearance of unforeseen aspects for our clients.

  • Ready to go: our solution allows the companies that are considering the sale of all or part of their business to count on the advice of a team that is a leader in anticipating decisions and carrying out preparatory processes in order to take on a subsequent sales operation successfully.
  • Our team specialises in the design of due diligence that combines precision and effectiveness, since they are oriented towards maximising the price of the operation, minimising guarantees, reducing the negotiation time and avoiding possible liabilities towards the buyer.
