Mergers, acquisitions and reorganizations

You are planning to buy or sell shares or to restructure your company. Regulations are complex, financing perspectives are confusing and the whole process is uncertain in the current business environment. You wish that someone would help you to assess the situation and to detect all important aspects in every step of the transaction. Your company needs someone who would listen to your needs, have relevant knowledge and experience and would help you to lead the transaction effectively to its successful closing.

Regardless of the specific nature of the transaction, we at Jesse & Kalaus Attorneys will determine your strategy, plan the best possible solution based on your needs and financial capabilities and lead the process to its conclusion by preventing risks.

Our long term and extensive experience combined with sector-specific knowledge will give you a competitive advantage and will also save your time and money. M&A transactions generally don’t require a large team. You need to have specialists who know what they are doing and do it effectively. We have advised clients in all phases of M&A transactions, including structuring of the transaction and preparation of the prospectus, carrying out of the legal due diligence, preparation and negotiation of the transaction documents, closing of the transaction as well as post-closing integration and advice.

We advise clients in various sectors of economy. We have considerable experience in energy, infrastructure and electronic communications, real estate, food industry and agriculture. In recent years our attorneys have participated in the largest M&A transactions in Estonia as advisers to the vendors or the purchasers and are now ready to participate in your project too.
