What we can
All sides of the negotiating table
As experienced dealmakers, we are familiar with all sides of the negotiating table. So we thoroughly understand what's important to you. But just insisting on what one thinks is right does not always lead to the best solution. Understanding what drives the other party is at least as important to us. By understanding all the interests as thoroughly as possible, it's easier to reach an agreement.

• Investment rounds
• Management participation plans

Differences of opinion between shareholders, the management or supervisors about the course of the company's business can lead to a deadlock. We take on different roles in order to find a solution for the company and its stakeholders. For example, the role of a lawyer who acts on behalf of a party, but also roles where we stand above all the parties in order to unblock the stalled process.
