Mergers and Acquisitions

The volume of M&A transactions conducted in Russia has decreased over the last few years as a result mainly of the economic downturn, falling oil prices, limited access to financing, lower domestic activity and an unstable ruble. But despite this downturn, the M&A market remains buoyant thanks to new modern trends. Sanctions have given rise to a production localization trend which has translated into a drastic increase in local manufacturing. Another trend has also been observed whereby modern production facilities are acquired or set up for export purposes. This practice is indeed highly profitable especially in view of a weak ruble.    

We help companies with the purchase and sale of assets or businesses, as well as enter the Russian market through acquisitions or by merging with other companies. We also assist with business restructuring. Our M&A services cover all aspects of a deal from pre-deal planning, due diligence, to deal structuring, taking part in negotiations and post-deal follow up. 

If you are planning to sell or buy a business or assets, we can help you by:

  • Identifying buyers & sellers;
  • Conducting a pre-sale review;
  • Conducting financial, tax, legal due diligence, and audits; 
  • Structuring the deal;
  • Preparing the share or asset purchase agreement and any other relevant paperwork;
  • Advising and representing you in negotiations;
  • Providing deal closing support.  

All our activities for the conclusion of transactions are supported by a number of reputable notary offices in St. Petersburg and Moscow ready to work with us on the shortest notice and on complex projects.
