M&A related advisory services comprise the provision of legal support to e.g. investors and/or (management of) companies during acquisition processes (including both share and assets deals) and participations.
In addition, Niko regularly advises on the setting up of efficient corporate governance structures, providing for clear rules as to (division of powers between) management, supervisory board and shareholder(s). He is frequently asked to act as a sparring partner of management, supervisory directors, shareholders and investors.
