Mergers and Acquisitions

Jeantet supports its clients in their mergers and acquisitions and our capacity to innovate and anticipate has formed the basis of our transactional activity for over fifty years.

Our monitoring and research of market developments and of numerous business sectors equips us with an acute understanding of potential strategic operations that our clients may require in order to support them effectively beyond providing basic legal advice.

Our practice, in France and abroad, covers a wide range of economic sectors (finance, health, services, industries, energy, media, etc.) and all types of strategic operations for the external growth or reorganisation of groups and businesses.

Our teams mainly cover the following activities:

  • purchases and sales of listed companies (public takeover bid) and non-listed companies;
  • joint ventures;
  • solvent restructuring processes: domestic or transnational mergers, transfers of headquarters, Societas Europaea (SE), transformations, partial asset contributions, demergers, etc.;
  • corporate governance;
  • privatisations;
  • LBO, MBO;
  • venture capital, development capital;
  • restructuring of businesses in difficulty (conciliation, ad hoc mandates, safeguards and collective proceedings).

Jeantet also handles litigation cases (which may or may not be stock market-related) involving merger and acquisition operations.
