Baker McKenzie advised B+G Schweiz AG ("B+G") on the acquisition of a minority stake in Hauser Holding AG ("Hauser"). With this step, Hauser joins the leading Swiss gardening and landscaping group. B+G is thus expanding its area of activity, which now extends from Lake Geneva to Lake Zurich. With this investment, the company has taken another strategically important step in the regional development of its market region and is growing to an annual turnover of more than CHF 120 million, uniting over 650 employees in 10 companies.

B+G was founded in 2021 to become the national market leader in the gardening and landscaping sector in Switzerland. Today, the group is an association of the leading gardening and landscaping companies.

Baker McKenzie Switzerland advised B+G on all legal aspects of this transaction.

Led by M&A Partner Alexander Fischer and M&A Senior Associate Ramon Tissafi, the Baker McKenzie team further consisted of Andrea Puricelli (associate, Corporate), Philipp Ruchti (associate, Real Estate), Andreas Becker (associate, Employment & Compensation) and Victoria Hotz (trainee lawyer).
