M&A” stands for “Mergers and Acquisitions” and is probably the practice area whose transactions you most often see on the front page of the business section of the newspapers. The work is exactly what it sounds like – merging, demerging (i.e. separating), buying and selling of companies and their assets. It also deals with the formation and restructuring of companies and with joint ventures and strategic alliances. M&A quite frequently involves a cross-border element.
Transactions can be public (when they involve companies listed on a stock exchange) or private (when they involve companies privately owned by individuals) in nature, and the M&A department of a firm usually also handles private equity-financed transactions.
