Mergers & Acquisitions
We advise both Dutch and overseas companies on all aspects of buying and selling companies and businesses, which often involve a cross-border element. The transactions we work on mostly involve an international dimension, in which case we coherently work together with other law firms. We assist buyers, sellers and financial advisers on mainly private mergers and acquisitions.
Private Equity & Venture Capital
We have extensive experience in all aspects of private equity work. Our lawyers advise on the full range of transactions from venture capital investments to larger cross-border mergers and acquisitions and from the initial setting up of a fund and setting up of the investment structure all the way through to exit. Our expertise includes acting for private equity investors, fund managers and also founders of companies who are taking private equity on board. Although our clients operate and invest in all industry sectors, Van Campen Liem has an important client base in the biotech and medical industries.
Corporate and Corporate Restructurings
Corporate work is at the heart of our practice, and forms the basis of all our core practice areas. We assist a range of Dutch and international clients in all sectors and advise on a broad spectrum of corporate work.
Our combined tax and notarial expertise enables us to advise on complex domestic and international corporate restructurings, for which we often work closely with other specialist law firms within or outside of the Netherlands. We have many years of experience in efficiently coordinating multi-jurisdictional restructuring for our clients.
Our Investment Funds practice focuses on private equity funds, venture capital funds, real estate funds and hedge funds, but we are increasingly involved in setting up and advising on investments in alternative asset classes, renewable energy and impact investment funds. Our assistance on investment funds stretches further than mere advice on the legal process and also includes commercial and regulatory advice as well as assistance on fund raising by sharing our experience and contacts with clients from our broad network. We provide tax advice related to the structuring of the fund as well as to the carried interest entitlements and the remuneration package of the fund managers. We advise the managers in fund structuring and formation projects as well as LPs and institutional investors when negotiating their participation into funds and secondary deals.
Tax aspects can make or break a transaction or the setup of investment structures and corporate structures. Focusing on corporate and private equity transactional work, the tax advisors of Van Campen Liem seamlessly work together with our corporate lawyers and thoroughly understand the investments and businesses of our clients. This enables us to give creative, in-depth and innovative tax efficient advice and to create transaction structures with a view to successful and often value driven exits. Our tax team advises on a broad range of corporate transaction and tax planning work and assists clients in the M&A, private equity, venture capital, and investment funds marketplace.
Regulatory & Compliance
For clients we provide the capability to make legal and compliance requirements work in a practical manner. As such, clients can achieve their commercial goals in full compliance with regulatory requirements.
Our regulatory lawyers have extensive experience within the Dutch and Luxemburg regulatory spectrum. We render regulatory services including, amongst others, assisting and advising on regulatory issues relating to private equity, venture capital, asset management, FinTech and fund structuring. The team performs regulatory due diligence, determines applicable legal requirements, validates, manages regulatory testing of prospective board members, drafts regulatory compliance requirements set out in internal policies, and manages license application procedures front-to-end.
