Pestalozzi’s Corporate/M&A practice group has provided domestic and foreign companies, investors and executives with commercial and corporate law solutions for more than a century. We have developed in-depth knowledge and expertise in a broad range of important industries (e.g. Chemicals, Media).

The Corporate/M&A practice group provides domestic and foreign clients with a full range of Swiss corporate and commercial legal advisory services in five distinct areas – corporate, M&A, commercial, capital markets and private equity/venture capital.

  • Corporate law advice covers incorporations, capital increases, capital reductions, small- and large-scale corporate reorganizations, restructuring and corporate housekeeping (including the share register, FATF register, commercial register and corporate secretarial work). Several specialists focus on listed companies and cover all legal issues relevant to listed companies and their top executives
  • Pestalozzi’s M&A specialists design and implement acquisition and disposition strategies for public and private companies (including friendly and hostile tender offers) and represent strategic and financial buyers, sellers, and their respective financial advisors in all kinds of cross-border and domestic M&A transactions. These range from share- and asset-purchase transactions (including auctions processes) to public takeovers and takeover defenses, squeeze-outs, mergers, demergers, carve-out transactions, spin-offs and other asset transfers.
