Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

Haagstate Advocaten advises on approximately 25 to 30 transactions per year, mainly in the ‘lower and mid-market’ section (acquisitions with a deal value up to € 50 million). Clients praise the M&A attorneys of Haagstate for their ‘no-nonsense’ and ‘hands-on’ approach, facilitating transactions as quickly, effectively and efficiently as possible, without comprising the quality of the transaction. Haagstate only has senior attorneys who were trained at large (international) offices working in the area of transactions. They are a first point of contact during an acquisition process. As a result, the communication lines with our clients remain short.

During the past few years, the M&A team, under the leadership of Harm van Efferink, has gained a lot of acquisition experience in various sectors of the Dutch economy. For instance, in the TMT sector (technology/software industry, media and telecom) and in the care sector. Due to their commitment, the attorneys of Haagstate can carry out a due diligence investigation and present a report setting out their findings within a relatively short term, while the transaction documentation is drafted during the same period.

Since the incorporation of Haagstate in 2008, various private equity houses and venture capitalists have obtained assistance for their acquisitions (purchase and sale). During the past years, Haagstate has built a base of faithful customers, who involve us in every possible transaction on a continual basis. We provide advice in all aspects of the M&A practice, for example:

  • Mergers
  • Acquisitions
  • Private equity
  • Venture capital
  • (Investments in) start-ups
  • Structuring of investment funds and financing constructions (equity and debt)
