Excellence matters

We are “the” independent German M&A advisor – pro-active, highly experienced and focused solely on your best interest – and can lead your domestic and international transactions to full success. You can benefit from our bundled excellence in every respect – from idea development to best-in-class execution – characterized by commitment, genuine enthusiasm for M&A and by Metzler’s unique value culture.

High-quality M&A advisory services

Benefit from our comprehensive know-how and long-standing transaction experience across the entire M&A spectrum: sell-side and buy-side advisory, mergers, carve-outs, leveraged buy-outs and privatizations.

In a sell-side process, our clients rely on our excellence and experience in handling key success factors, e.g.:

  • Selection and presentation of targeted information to investors
  • Development of the best equity story and anticipation of critical issues
  • Design and organization of tailor-made, competitive sell-side processes
  • Definition of key success criteria for buyer selection

In a buy-side process, our unique network is a differentiating success factor. We have excellent access to all relevant companies, decision makers and other important stakeholders. Thus we can help you position yourself and your company as the most suitable buyer and incorporate the goals of the seller into your considerations.

In succession situations or when a realignment of shareholder structures becomes necessary, we develop flexible concepts tailored to your specific needs.

We provide expert advice to companies, owners and insolvency administrators in all financial distressed and insolvency situations. In particular, what sets us apart is:
