Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions are methods by which companies legally unify ownership of assets formerly subject to separate controls. Mergers and acquisitions are regulated principally by the Maltese Companies Act under the Title “Amalgamation of Companies”. The act distinguishes between two types of amalgamation namely, merger by acquisition and merger by the formation of a new company. Merger control is then regulated by Control of Concentrations Regulations issued under the Maltese Competition Act.

DF Advocates represents buyers, sellers and advisers in planning, negotiating and executing mergers and acquisitions. Whether the deal is domestic or international, public or private, negotiated or hostile, we commit ourselves to achieve our our clients’ business imperatives remains consistent. We strive to structure financeable deals, focus on speed-to-market execution and protect our clients’ interests in all phases of their transactions. We are particularly adept at bringing a business-oriented focus to transactions, assisting clients in not only the legal and technical aspects of complex transactions, but also economic and value-related implications.

Sturgeon Ventures the Pioneer of Regulatory Incubation in the UK, has successfully worked and launched funds in Malta since 2012 with the assistance DF Advocates. We love working with this team because they are not only extremely knowledgeable about local regulations but their turnaround is exemplary and this is key in the timing of all fund launches. We were very excited when Robert Higgins joined the team from the MFSA, the Maltese Regulator as he too had worked with Sturgeon since 2011, bringing his deep expertise into an already vibrant team.
