Mergers and Acquisitions

PwC Legal’s M&A department is distinctive in three important aspects:

  1. International capability: through the PwC global network, our team comprises more than 3,500 lawyers in 95 countries – in terms of its geographical dimensions, it is the biggest law firm in the world. Therefore, we can set up and manage a team to successfully complete even the most complicated cross-border tasks.
  2. Unique competence in cooperation with PwC’s business consulting and taxation experts: our unique transaction team of 25 members combines M&A lawyers, business consulting experts and taxation advisors. As a result, we are one of the biggest and most experienced advisors for business transactions. We can provide solutions at any stage of the transaction and advise you on structuring, valuation and modelling, provide financial, legal and tax due diligence, data space management, help you with formation of joint ventures, management consulting, restructuring, preparation of necessary documentation, provide consultations in the post-transaction phase, and offer other services.
  3. Global Centre of Excellence: our team members regularly participate in the work of both M&A and other Centres of Excellence, as well as in training programmes where they can further enhance their professional skills. Due to their top knowledge and direct contacts with their international peers, they can successfully perform any cross-border transaction.
