The M&A lawyer

What is the role of the M&A lawyer?

The business expertise in this area called M&A, or more simply, mergers and acquisitions, is in fact to help a client to : Declare interest in an investment, Study the first available documents (or deck), Draft a letter of intent (still called LOI), Audit the target (still an English word with due diligences), Draft accordingly the deeds of transfer and guarantee (or GAP).

Of course, this is a simplistic view of the matter because the lawyer can be with his client who is not only on the buying side, but also selling or wanting to raise funds to ensure its development.

The presence of the lawyer is preferable as soon as the project is set up, not to influence the economic choice of the company director, but to underline to him the points which it is necessary to look at well in the first times to make a simple idea. But the role of the lawyer is not only to secure the operation, but also to help the manager in the realization of the operation by the contribution of his coordinator of competences (chartered accountant, financiers, expert trade, auditor…) and of digital solution fluidifying the exchanges (platform of due diligence, electronic signature)
