Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Rotthege Wassermann provices excellent advice to both sellers and purchasers in domestic and international mergers and acquisitions.

We support companies in strategic business development, develop requirement profiles for target companies and give legal and tax advice on acquisition and funding structures. We also prepare negotiations, carry out due diligence on target companies, draft share purchase agreements and advise during the execution of the transaction.

Alongside our core competencies of corporate law, property law and tax law, our advisers possess legal qualifications in other areas of expertise, including industrial property rights and information technology.

Our auditors and tax advisers bring to the table extensive experience in tax planning and business valuation.

Dr. Georg Rotthege and Prof. Dr. Bernd Wassermann have recently offered an account of their many years of experience of acquisitions in Unternehmenskauf bei der GmbH (publisher: C.F. Müller, 2011).

Real Estate Transactions

The provision of legal advice in real estate transactions is one of the firm's key practice areas.

We advise national and international sellers, purchasers and investors in both asset deals and more complex share deals. As such, one of the focal points of our service, alongside the comprehensive legal and tax-related process of due diligence, is the tax structuring of the transaction and advice on the funding of the acquisition. We have extensive experience of assisting during the acquisition and sale of shopping malls, retail parks, hybrid malls, office buildings, hotels and distribution centers. Furthermore, our firm demonstrates particular expertise in the design of joint venture agreements.
