Integration and Restructuring in the Post-acquisition Stage

 

The completion of the transaction is only the first step. The integration of the two companies after the M&A, the governance of the acquiring company is more important. Especially, in cross-border transactions, different cultures, languages and historical business models can lead to friction.

We assist the integration in two stages. In the early stage, we assist the management teams of both parties, who participate in the integration, with the drafting of the initial integration plan and execution.

In the later stage, we assist the employees of the acquirer in overseas licensing, cultural integration, and help them to familiar with overseas corporate governance and related laws and policies.
