Team M&A consists of lawyers specialising in merger and acquisition (M&A). Their background is in corporate law and labour law, combined with accountancy and business experience.

Team M&A assists in the process of mergers and acquisitions, and is there for both buyers, sellers and investors. We conduct useful and to-the-point due diligence, review transaction documents or draw these up ourselves. In preparing the transaction documentation, we are clear, pragmatic and properly translate the results of the due diligence. We also offer (legal and strategic) support throughout the process. We are a much sought-after consulting partner from the time of intent to buy or sell until after the transaction. For both national and international acquisitions. And for equity transactions as well as so-called asset/liability deals.

Jan Kalisvaart


“Though I know everything about my company, that does not apply to mergers, acquisitions and labour law. In my search for a reliable partner who does have that knowledge, I found Marxman Advocaten. Their M&A team guided me superbly through the process of selling my company. The collaboration with their specialists was very smooth. Thanks to the legal knowledge, experience and commitment of the Labour Law and M&A teams, I was relieved of my worries, the negotiations went smoothly and I can look back on a successful and pleasant transaction.”
Wilbert de Vries


“Marxman’s M&A Team delves into the business and understands what is needed before, during and after a transaction to make a good deal. I particularly appreciate the direct lines of communication, pragmatic advice and solution-oriented approach of Marxman. Combined with their specialist legal knowledge, this makes Marxman a valuable partner in acquisition projects.”
