M&A Key Services

Vialex can guide you through the whole Mergers & Acquisitions process, seamlessly working with your business until the deal is done

We bring a commercially orientated mindset that understands your industry. We are here to help you manage and understand the impact of risk, to make decisions, and to deliver the documentation and governance that makes the deal. In all this we don’t lose sight of your goals and objectives. We work closely with professional service providers across all the disciplines involved in a sale to provide you with a seamless service.

Our legal services are for clients on either side of a business deal and span the entire M&A spectrum. These services include company and asset or business unit acquisitions, full & partial share deals, private equity, venture capital transactions, joint ventures, carve-outs and projects, distressed transactions, and takeovers. Business restructuring and realignment is in our scope too. We work with our trusted partners should there be an IPO or international dimension to any particular deal.

Deal Preparation

The buy and sell sides of an M&A transaction have different interests but both want to know the impact on price of any adverse issues.

How Vialex works for you

  • For sell side, preparing the data room and using our experience to eliminate issues that may trip up deal execution, pricing, or timing. 
  • For buy side, reporting, assessing and quantifying relevant information or gaps in that information, against your strategic plans.
What we do


Once the deal is done that is just the beginning and if it is to be a success effective integration is essential.

How Vialex works for you
