Assisting managers in an efficient way requires guiding them in a financial and legal environment they are generally not familiar with.
We have been advising a healthcare group under LBO for almost 20 years on all aspects of their contractual relationships with their financial and corporate partners. We assisted them in their acquisitions and successive buy-outs which enabled the management team to increase its interest into a majority shareholding, before the group was sold to a competitor in order to create the second largest firm in this branch of industry.
One of our clients who was the CEO of a group under LBO was dismissed, a decision that created a conflict between the shareholders. We suggested and obtained the shareholders’consent for the appointment of a mediator who was selected because of his knowledge of the issues at hand and of the persons concerned, while being independent and respected. He succeeded in re-establishing a dialogue, which was key to finding a global liquidity and finally settling the dispute.
