Karman Associés assists all of the market players (entrepreneurs, business angels, investment funds, industrial groups, family offices or managers), both in their creation/seed operations and venture and growth capital operations (minority and majority investment), as well as in their leveraged buyouts (LBO, MBO, MBI or OBO) or mezzanine financing operations.
Because we believe that legal engineering must, above all, serve projects, our intervention is pragmatic, cross-disciplinary and particularly adapted to the needs of each individual. We are especially convinced that the private equity economy is based on a harmonious partnership between entrepreneurs, investors and employees, the constant search of which is our real added value.
Within this framework, Karman Associés favors anticipation and long-term support:
- we intervene upstream, from the creation phase, then in the preparation, analysis and structuring phases, to avoid or repair the pitfalls that could slow down, or even prevent, the completion of transactions;
- we closely collaborate during the drafting and negotiation phases of contractual and corporate documentation (letters of intent, investment protocols, shareholders’ agreements, guarantee agreements, IRR sharing agreements, issuance of composite securities – ABSA, OCA, etc.);
- our support continues beyond operations, both on matters of pure governance/shareholding as well as on strategic aspects or mobilization of teams, on which our expertise in labor law constitutes one of the added values of Karman Associés.
