Areas of Specialisation

Private M&A

Founders, entrepreneurs and investors in privately held companies trust us for the success of their private M&A transactions. Our transaction, regulatory and industry lawyers know how to make cross-border transactions work in the globalised marketplace of today. We provide the depth of specialist knowledge and breadth of regional coverage needed to make your venture successful.

Public M&A

We are equally effective in public M&A matters. When consensus seems elusive, we find solutions with regulators and stakeholders in the most complex of matters, including executing the acquisition of controlling and minority stakes and both mandatory and voluntary bids. No matter what side of the transaction you're on, we advise on the structuring of due diligence, negotiations and approvals from regulatory authorities for bidders, sellers, targets and bondholders.

Distressed M&A

Distress in transactions doesn't have to mean stress in your company. In your time of need, we are there to help you calmly sort out effective options to reduce debt burden and optimise your legal position in reorganisations and turnarounds. We advise companies, international, national and regional financial institutions, lenders, alternative debt and equity providers as well as special situation funds in domestic as well as cross-border matters.

Privatisation & Liberalisation

Our expert advice is born of the practical business world that you work in: our specialist lawyers have worked in the financial services, telecommunications, airline and energy industries and make their insight into the drivers, challenges, valuation and structural issues of these sectors work for the success of your transaction. We advise clients and sovereigns on privatisation transactions in multiple bidder situations and have experience in negotiating with governments, their advisors, stakeholders and regulatory agencies.

 

Corporate Governance and Compliance

Compliance is hard enough as it is without accounting for the complications of different jurisdictions. We have the competence you need to deal with corporate law matters, implementing corporate governance regimes and compliance programmes across borders and jurisdictions. Listed companies, privately held groups, private equity fund managers and start-ups are just some of the kinds of entities we've helped guide through the compliance thicket.

Joint Ventures

Much of what we do at Wolf Theiss Corporate/M&A is to simplify the complex and to make it work for you. This is especially true for the complexities of joint venture partnerships. We routinely guide clients in investigating and implementing funding, management and governance mechanisms that mitigate potential disputes and difficulties. Our expertise runs the gamut of the joint venture lifecycle, from initial formation to regulatory approvals, financing, corporate governance and exit structures.

Private Equity

From fund formation to LP & GP agreements, regulatory compliance and governance and portfolio M&A, we know how to leverage your private equity in Austria and CEE/SEE and make it work for your future. Our M&A specialists facilitate and negotiate transactions, and execute other instruments, such as complex financings, strategic partnerships, leveraged buyouts, cross-border M&A, carve-out transactions, IPOs and  trade sale exits.

Venture Capital & Start-ups

Some say that we've entered the age of the start-up. A number of exciting opportunities for VC investors have led to the growth of a real start-up ecosystem in Austria and CEE/SEE. In such a rapidly and unpredictably developing field, you need proactive advice and advisers who can facilitate collaboration between entrepreneurs and venture capital investors. When time and costs are an issue, our industry specialists allow us to provide real deal value, ensuring successful transactions and a solid foundation for future growth.
