GLC Legal

Conversions, restructurings

Company conversions are among the extremely complex undertakings. Taking the right legal steps in time often determines the success of the entire transaction.

To be safe, consult an expert before taking any steps. Transactions such as mergers and acquisitions tend to be crucial for companies and their founders. GLC’s experienced lawyers will help get through these processes as quickly and smoothly as possible.

We do not act in a template – we approach each transaction individually, using the many years of experience of our specialists. Among other things, we provide professional advice, taking into account all relevant legal and tax aspects, comprehensive execution of the company’s transformation process, as well as conducting financial audits and preparing all necessary documentation.

In the field of mergers and acquisitions, we provide consulting services at all stages of the transaction – both to the buying and selling side.

Clients turn to us for support because of our previous experience in such projects and our recognition in the consulting market.

The fact that our portfolio includes a number of M&A transactions, both domestic and international, is also not without significance.

For whom?

We support companies planning a merger with another entity or a transformation. We also work with clients who are already in the middle of such a process and need highly specialized advice.

What do you gain?

Enterprises that have decided to reach out for GLC’s assistance gain, first of all, the invaluable feeling that they have entrusted their key matters in good hands. They don’t have to worry about the correctness of documentation, the results of audits, or the conduct of negotiations – we take over each of these activities. We provide support not only legally, but also on the tax background. GLC’s handling of transformation processes is fully comprehensive. Companies that trust us can focus all their energies on their own business, without worrying about the future after the transaction is completed.

Mergers

Three stages can be distinguished in the merger process. The first involves preparatory activities. These involve, among other things, drawing up a merger plan, agreeing it between the merging companies, and then filing it with the registry court. It is also subjected to examination by a certified auditor for correctness and fairness. The next stage is the adoption of resolutions by the shareholders of the merging companies. The merger process closes with the stage of registering and announcing the merger of the companies.

Cross-border mergers

Cross-border mergers are highly complex and formalized processes. They require perfect cooperation between service providers from the countries of residence of the two companies. Cross-border mergers are carried out in two stages. The first stage is carried out in accordance with the domestic law of each of the merging companies. The second stage is carried out exclusively according to the legal order of the acquiring or newly incorporated company.

“Corporate capital changes are a permanent feature of the nature of the operation of large market players. Mergers, acquisitions or amalgamations can be of strategic importance for the development of a company and determine the realisation of its full potential. It can be inadvertently squandered by making the wrong decisions at the stage of preparation and execution of the structural change process.”

“More and more entrepreneurs are using foreign companies for business purposes. However, the transfer of the registered office of a Polish company to another European country still poses practical problems. Cross-border mergers effectively help to simplify and accelerate this procedure. They are an example of the effective implementation of European Union law into the Polish Commercial Companies Code.”
