Accura has all the qualifications needed to act as our clients’ legal sparring partner in connection with the preparation and planning of transactions.
Besides M&A-related core services, such as the drafting of confidentiality agreements and letters of intent, we specialise in tax-related structuring and competition and public procurement law.
Accura performs legal due diligence investigations commissioned by the buyer or the seller, and, in connection with large transactions, we act as project managers of due diligence investigations performed in two or more countries at the same time.
We submit brief commercial reports, and we focus on the aspects that are significant to our clients.
We coordinate our investigations with those performed by our clients’ other advisors, and we explain complex legal problems in an easy-to-understand and directly usable manner.
Accura sets up physical and virtual data rooms in connection with sales processes and other M&A transactions, and we handle all practicalities relating to the various advisor teams' use of data rooms.
Accura has extensive expertise with the drafting of all kinds of transfer documents with schedules and all kinds of ancillary agreements, such as shareholders’ agreements and investment agreements.
We strive to avoid complicating matters unnecessarily, and we always adjust our input and the size of the documentation to the size and complexity of the transaction.
In most transactions, financing is pivotal to success.
Accura assists the buyer or the seller with the negotiation and drafting of financing documents. We also perform independent due diligence investigations and draft documents for the financing banks.
Accura represents both insurance companies and potential policyholders (buyer or seller), and we assist with the special kind of due diligence investigation and the specific documentation required for such transaction insurances.
Transaction-specific insurance is a new and growing market within M&A.
Accura has all the qualifications needed to advise on and introduce any kind of management remuneration and incentive plan.
The advice and the overall transaction structure are often closely connected, and our advice typically includes complicated aspects of company law and contract law.

Accura has extensive expertise in the field of private equity funds, for example in relation to the funds’ internal organisation, procedures and funding. We have represented most of the largest private equity funds in the world, almost all Scandinavian private equity funds and a significant number of the other Western European and American private equity funds.
Accura often represents management teams in connection with management buy-ins and buy-outs, and we safeguard the interests of the management teams in relation to financial investors and external finance.
Our trademark is to follow through on all transactions.
We prepare and close transactions, and we take all necessary steps after closing. In other words: we perform all the legal and practical tasks necessary for the transaction "to cross the finish line".
Our trademark is to combine planning and project management with legal know-how over the entire M&A spectrum, and we are proud to have this as our trademark.
We always place the client and the transaction at the centre of our attention.
We work in teams, each team having a partner responsible for client relations and a senior associate responsible for project management.
The project manager leads the project team and ensures that our many legal teams provide M&A-related core services as well as legal services within their particular practice area. The project manager controls the process to ensure smooth co-operation with the client’s other advisors. The project manager also controls the co-operation with our many international, legal business partners throughout the world.
Regardless of transaction type, we seek to make our clients feel that they are in the safe hands of a modern and dynamic law office offering not only first-class legal services, but also effective project and transaction management.
This is the perfect starting point for implementing our clients’ commercial decisions.
Human resources and strategy
We know that extensive resources and a distinct sense of urgency are required to solve M&A assignments in a satisfactory manner.
Accura has the capacity, the professional qualifications and the “can do” approach that are necessary to “score goals for our clients”.

At short notice, we are able to set up teams of any size providing the human resources and specialist skills necessary to handle any situation that may arise.
It is an integral part of our services to contribute to the transaction strategy chosen by our clients. It is important to us to deliver not only the basic legal material but also to be able to put such material into the best possible strategic relation and co-operate actively with our clients in choosing the most suitable strategy that will lead to successful transaction management.
