Mergers & Acquistions

Are you about to buy or sell a company? Or has the time come to transfer ownership under an estate planning procedure? If so, you should remember to keep the commercial overview and secure your business transfer by means of competent counselling on all legal and practical matters.

HjulmandKaptain advises Danish and foreign companies on all legal and practical matters in connection with mergers and acquisitions in Denmark and abroad. This applies, whether or not it is about a share purchase or a business transfer (i.e. assets/liabilities).


A merger or acquisition may pose several problems, if not handled professionally. Therefore, many things must be taken into account. For example, relevant information must be procured; the agreement must contain the warranties required for both the buyer and the seller; the tax affairs and the consequences of the transfer must be sufficiently examined; and in other respects, the transfer must be duly completed, in every way and respect.


This means, among other things, that a number of legal disciplines must be mastered, and not least is it important to keep the commercial overview to be able to complete securely any business transfer. HjulmandKaptain possesses the required expertise, conferring with in-house specialists within each specific subject area, whenever needed.


HjulmandKaptain is also highly experienced in the completion of legal due diligence, both when preparing a business sale and when completing the actual transfer of the business.


In our experience, a business transfer has the best chances of turning out successfully, if completed in close cooperation between the company, its management and owners and the advisers involved, particularly the attorney and the auditor.
