Corporate law / Capital-Investment/ Group structuring and optimisation

The LIGNER & ROCHELET Firm assists its clients in investment operations for corporate acquisitions, transfers and cooperation, the acquisition of controlling groups, minority equity underwriting and corporate transfers to managers.

At our disposal is our expertise in this field which we gained in particular during calls for funds, internal or external buy-backs (LBO, MBO-MBI, LMBO...), mergers, liquidation operations, in the capacity of advisors to investors, managers or shareholders; this means that we have a concrete and transversal understanding of capital-investment operations.

In these operations, we include consulting services and assistance in labour and tax law.
