Mergers and Acquisitions
Recent years have witnessed a considerable surge of mergers and acquisitions across Europe and the US, necessarily extending to the jurisdictions in which the Miranda Alliance practices are present. M&A transactions pose increasingly challenging problems at several levels, in particular from a financing and security perspective but also from a regulatory standpoint. We advise companies, financial institutions and private equity houses on a variety of complex public and private M&A transactions by employing the best technical and commercial skills on all of their aspects. Our M&A capability comprises both Portugal and the African jurisdictions covered by the Miranda Alliance member firms and include purely domestic and cross-border transactions.
Some of our lawyers have gained a great deal of experience by having worked in-house at the securities market regulator, investment banks and other securities houses. This provides them and our clients with an invaluable source of legal, regulatory, technical and commercial expertise.
