Succession planning | M & A
In every company – regardless of its size and corporate structure – the question of its long-term continued existence or at least its corporate restructuring arises, when the circumstances so require. This can result in the sale, merger or transfer of a sole proprietorship or a partnership to the next generation. In the case of a corporation, the question may arise as well whether other companies, establishments or business units should be acquired or whether own holdings or business units should be sold.
The key factor in all such transactions is their significance for the company as such and, as a rule, the considerable legal and tax consequences that may result from such transactions.
