Skadden has one of the leading M&A practices in the world. For more than 20 years, we have developed a top mergers and acquisitions capability in Europe with a focus on complex, cross-border transactions. We have significant and unique experience in structuring and executing challenging transactions throughout our network of European offices. We have an established first-tier capability in Takeover Code-regulated transactions and have a fully established nonpublic and private equity transactions practice. We offer significant advantages in managing complex cross-border issues and the demands of multiple legal and regulatory regimes. We develop strategies for execution of our mandates by drawing on the wealth of experience of a close knit and complementary group of U.S. and European practitioners to exploit practices and developments from the world of M&A, sensitive to the local environment in which the acquisition entities are established.
