At Mazars we understand the need of dealing with legal issues in an international environment. We offer a pragmatic and cross specialization approach to a diverse client base. We work with global owner-managed businesses and European listed companies, but also with local companies, associations and private individuals.
We give specialist advice on mergers, acquisitions, and transfer pricing or setting up a new legal entity overseas. We combine this knowledge with our wider in-house expertise in other areas such as tax and financial advisory.
Depending on the country, we can assist and advise you in the following expertise:
Mazars has extensive expertise in mergers, private tender offers, share transfers, joint ventures and strategic alliances, corporate restructuring, spin-offs, MBOs and demergers.
We assist clients through the entire deal process, including advice on deal structures, acquisition financing and due diligence, both on a standalone basis and as part of a broader, multi-firm team.
What really makes our corporate practice truly stand out is the integrated tax and civil law approach that we take, which is unique to the market.
Given the fact that a failure to comply with certain legal obligations can lead to financial and criminal sanctions for a company and/or its directors, companies are under a great deal of pressure to keep up with the evolving requirements in this respect.
Mazars understands these constraints and helps their clients by taking a very hands-on, pragmatic and practical approach. We assist them in all matters ranging from drafting all sorts of board and shareholder minutes to preparing the relevant documents required for the approval of the annual accounts.
Restructuring & Insolvency
Businesses in financial difficulties offer both risks and opportunities. Mazars can assist companies and their principal stakeholders by providing assistance in restructuring and insolvency situations.
All aspects will be taken into account, such as (corporate) liabilities, financial arrangements, liens and securities, guaranties, effects on contractual obligations and so on. In well-founded planning of corporate restructuring the tax liabilities often play an important role. Mazars has a fully integrated civil and tax law practice, and therefore is able to deliver all the advice that is required in a quick and efficient manner from a single point of contact.
Mazars is experienced in and advises on a wide variety of commercial contracts (such as distribution, agency and franchising, manufacturing contracts, sale and purchase agreements and general terms and conditions), product liability, construction and engineering and so on.
All contracts are drafted tailor-made, taking into account our client’s specific needs.
Employers have an on-going need for advice, representation and in-depth knowledge of employment, reward, and civil rights matters. The assessment and management of risk arising from the employment relationship is a key requirement for all organisations, wherever they are based or operate from.
Mazars, in close cooperation with our tax colleagues, advises on all aspects of individual and collective employment law and social security, as well as on international mobility and compensation and benefits issues.
