Niederer Kraft Frey enjoys a global reputation as one of Switzerland’s leading business law firms. We are regularly involved in many of the largest, most complex and demanding transactions in and outside of Switzerland.

Our Corporate/M&A practice is a core practice of Niederer Kraft Frey. We rank top-tier in independent legal directories and our lawyers are regularly rated as leaders in their field. In 2018, NKF received the Transatlantic M&A Team of the Year (Large Deal) Award by the American Lawyer. We have repeatedly contributed to major evolutions in Swiss corporate law in order to advance the interests of our clients. Among other things, for Actelion Ltd in its USD 30 billion takeover by Johnson & Johnson, NKF devised a dual deal structure consisting of the takeover and the demerger and spin-off to shareholders of Actelion’s drug discovery and early clinical development business which commentators described as “quantum leap” in Pharma M&A.

We counsel both public and private companies, advising on a wide range of corporate matters, including:

  • Domestic and international mergers and acquisitions
  • Private Equity and Strategic Investments
  • Public M&A and Contests for corporate Control
  • Corporate Governance and General Corporate Advice
  • Corporate Reorganizations and  Spinoffs
  • Startups and Venture Capital
