Global Mergers & Acquisitions

Reliability across borders

Rapid change, market volatility, management of stakeholders, credit constraints and global competitive forces make high value targets riskier to pursue, especially across borders. Well-planned strategies and their effective implementation are critical to getting deals done.

When it comes to complex transactions, you need advisers with deep knowledge, vast experience and global reach. As one of the world’s most active transactional firms, Baker & McKenzie brings a unique global and strategic perspective to help preserve and optimize deal benefits. Our practice spans 46 countries and includes more than 1,200 M&A lawyers with authentic knowledge of local regulations and transaction management procedures in varied deal contexts. Whether you are buying or selling, entering into a joint venture, or making a strategic investment, we approach each transaction with legal, financial and business fluency, offering sound and practical advice at every stage. Collaborating across borders and legal areas, we bring the right know-how and experience to anticipate and resolve issues in all involved jurisdictions.

On 20 August 2013, the Russian Supreme Arbitrazh Court published new guidelines regarding damages claims against chief executive officers, and management council and board members of Russian companies.
By 1 October 2014 all joint stock companies that maintain their own shareholder registers must transfer them to professional registrars. As an alternative a joint stock company with less than 50 shareholders can be transformed into a limited liability company within the same term. In this case the requirement will not apply.
Third-party agreement provisions can, if done properly, mitigate liability risks.
