Recent transactional highlights:

  • -Advised on a 18,000,000 USD cross-border transaction, in which the Firm represented a client holding a 50% stake in an international holding company amidst a deadlock situation. A settlement was reached through the implementation of a legal mechanism which facilitated the transfer of all remaining shares held by the other shareholders to our client, with the condition that the client's loans to the company would be repaid. Building on this achievement, the Firm continues to provide ongoing support and assistance by developing strategies and drafting amendments to the share purchase agreements and other related agreements, ensuring the smooth progression and favourable outcomes of this transaction.
