GANADO's Corporate Finance Team has advised on a number of the major corporate transactions in Malta for the benefit of international corporate groups, and is recognised as a leader in this sector.

Corporate Finance advisors in the firm are able to assist clients with :

  • Mergers and acquisitions;
  • Re-structuring and re-organisations;
  • Private equity structures;
  • Joint ventures;
  • Finance leasing structures;
  • Share for share exchanges;
  • Shareholder and subscription agreements;
  • Cross-border mergers;
  • Transfers of European companies (SEs); and
  • Re-domiciliations of companies.

As one of the few major law firms in Malta which has a tax practice, GANADO is able to provide comprehensive advisory services to clients in terms of both the corporate legal aspects as well as the tax implications of such transactions.

Our clients are primarily international corporate entities, with a good number of them being listed on the major international stock exchanges. We have regularly assisted vendors, purchasers, target entities, majority and minority investors, and management.

Our knowledge and experience in various major transactions are of benefit to clients as the Corporate Finance team is able to give value in the structuring and negotiation aspects of a transaction apart from the drafting and implementation side.

As corporate finance work is invariably of a cross-border nature, we co-operate with the client’s non-Maltese advisors in order to provide a seamless and integrated service to the client.

The firm has excellent professional relations with the Malta Registrar of Companies and is frequently involved in making technical submissions to, and negotiating with the Registrar on behalf of clients.

The depth of resources at the firm also enables the Corporate Finance Team to co-ordinate with other GANADO practices and provide full legal due diligence analysis and reports on all  Maltese law aspects as well as drafting of the relevant agreements which are typically required by international clients.
