Private Equity & Venture Capital

Financial investors on the one hand and start-ups or growth companies on the other hand need experienced and efficient advice for the structuring and successful implementation of investments /equity financings, participation purchases and buy-outs / exits.

GEIGER corporate&commercial assists its clients in this context. Following the establishment of the Term Sheet / Letter of Intent and of the exclusivity and confidentiality agreement, we carry out the legal and also the tax due diligence (with the assistance of cooperation partners). We draft and negotiate for our clients the purchase and investment aagreement (for example with guarantee clauses, tag-along and drag-along rules, purchase options, vesting conditions and proceeds distribution for various exit scenarios). In this context, we may provide our client with new agreements for the target’s managing directors or with an employee incentive scheme. Finally, we coordinate the formalisation of the project, in particular with notaries with whom GCC has developed long term and trustful cooperation relationships.
