Private M&A

Private M&A

Gernandt & Danielsson is a market leader in private M&A and our lawyers have served as advisors in several of the largest transactions that have occurred in Sweden. Our extensive experience and leading position is regularly confirmed by independent legal ranking institutes.

Gernandt & Danielsson offers advice in all areas of private M&A transactions. A transaction process can often be complex, with limited time to make important decisions. We have extensive transaction experience, which is required to be able to provide the best advice to both sellers and buyers, as well as to tailor the advice to the conditions of the specific transaction.

No matter who the client and counterparty are, no matter the size and nature of the deal, we have an in-depth understanding of how transactions work. We participate in both broad auction processes and bilateral negotiated deals. We also know that the same process doesn’t work in all situations and therefore customise the process based on the specific circumstances and the relevant parties.

Working with our client, we set the strategy for the transaction and place the law in the right context by taking a commercial approach to identifying, analysing, and managing risks and opportunities. We often act as project managers for the entire transaction but can also act as specialists, for example in global transactions where Sweden is one of many markets or if there are multiple sellers with different interests.

  • Acquisitions and divestitures

  • Carve-outs
  • Transaction structuring and preparation
  • Due diligence
