Mergers and acquisitions


“Being honest may not get you a lot of friend but it’ll always get you the right ones”. John Lennon


In view of the extremely competitive environment of the legal services market it is more essential than ever for clients to receive the added value provided by the legal team both from a legal and business perspective and a practical perspective.

At Ramón y Cajal we have extensive experience in national and international investments, acquisitions and corporate transactions, of both listed and non-listed companies, in a wide range of structures and sectors.

Our vision and work philosophy drives us to acquire an in-depth understanding of our clients’ business activities and their motivations and needs. Our services are focused on achieving this, planning and carrying out our work in a personalised, flexible and imaginative way to adapt to our clients’ objectives.

The creation of multidisciplinary work teams enables us to have a broader picture of the transaction in question, providing highly specialised advice together with legal and tax planning of the most suitable structure for the transaction.

We regularly advise our clients in relation to:

  • Transactions for the investment, divestment and acquisition of capital, assets and lines of business and hybrid capital debt instruments.
  • Business restructuring.
  • Structural changes in companies.
  • Due diligence processes and the correction of detected contingencies.
  • Shareholder agreements, business partnership agreements and joint venture agreements.
  • Planning of corporate structures.
