M&A, Public

Hannes Snellman is regarded as one of the premier law firms in the Nordic region, representing bidders and target boards as well as large shareholders in takeover situations. Public M&A transactions are generally of strategic importance, often involving complex corporate and disclosure issues; our lawyers have considerable experience working as international lead counsel and handling complex cross-border transactions. Also, our emphasis on teamwork makes it easier to draw on our specialists in other disciplines of law for the benefit of the Firm’s clients.
