A. CONSULTING

Management principles

 

At our office, we apply the principles of preventive Law/proactive Law. With this practice, we seek to allow a business to develop systems to avoid, manage, reduce or minimize legal liability for business, as well as business losses from fraud and bad debts. This in turn results in lower costs for legal expenses that would otherwise be incurred to defend claims or to restore bad debts.This is achieved through sound legal planning, thorough pre-contractual control and the close monitoring assistance in trade negotiations.

AREAS OF PRACTICE

– DUE DILIGENCE

 

 

As a result of our long experience in corporate and banking law cases along with the extensive experience we have gained from the hundreds of litigation disputes that we have handled, our office has in recent years expanded its practice to the Legal Due Diligence services mainly in the context of either financing a business or investing in it through M&A.

Given the fact that the foundation of our office primarily was based on judicial practice, it allows us to be profoundly aware of the many ways in which legal obligations can be derailed. This experience equip us with a great comparative advantage in the design, execution and final evaluation of legal due diligence process and findings, but above all, it allows us to provide the right solutions to the investor, not only to secure his investment but also to maximize it.

To this end, the legal review process is not only about verifying the information provided, but also identifying any important information that was not provided. It is also a search for clues as to where further research and evaluation should be targeted. For each case we prepare a dedicated due diligence checklist where we focus our search areas and based on our experience and knowledge we deepen our research and evaluate the provided documents. The purpose is to gather as much information as possible to analyze the financial viability of the planned transaction, the feasibility of the terms and the impact on the parties after the transaction is completed.

Although legal due diligence may not disclose or quantify every risk in the transaction, yet by completing it we are able to provide a broad spectrum of the target’s pros and cons thereby enhancing the investor’s bargaining position and limiting and/or mitigating his future risks.

Claims against the State, Public Entities and Local Authorities

 

A special case, due to the multiplicity and the strict bureaucracy that governs them are the claims against state bodies.
Our office has top-level knowledge and experience in the matter, having successfully heard hundreds of relevant trials and has produced specific case law for its clients.

That’s why our office has a long standing partnership with an outside lawyer and tax consultant in order to provide full services to our clients.
