Corporate M&A

Fromont Briens manages and structures the social aspect of all M&A transactions at all stages of the procedure.

An effective securing of mergers and acquisitions transactions requires a labour law partner with technical expertise but also a strategic vision of the entire procedure.
Thanks to our independent dimension and our undeniable expertise in labour law, we are able to coordinate and secure all social components of an operation. With the evolution and overlapping of different regulations, the social aspect of an operation can turn into a real blocking power. Achieving satisfactory security now requires the support of a true specialist in labour law. By positioning ourselves as an external expert, we have the necessary perspective to ensure the identification, implementation and effective monitoring of all procedures, as well as coordination with the various specialties.
“As recognised experts in our field, we actively participate in the construction of the overall deal strategy.”
  • Identifying legal scenarios and operations (merger, sale of shares, partial contribution of assets, public takeover bid, put options…)
  • Defining the social path and information/consultation procedures for the relevant employee representative bodies (European Works Council, local authorities)
  • Assistance in the intermediate stages of the operation (carve-out, social form conversions, denouncing collective agreements…)
  • Legal securing of acts (letter of intent, share purchase agreement, memorandum of understanding, closing agreement)
