Selected Transactions

The cross-product range of advice from Lighthouse covers the topics of equity, debt and M&A, but also special topics such as fairness opinions, takeover bids and defense advice. For capital market transactions, we work closely with our strategic partner, mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG, on the placement side. If we cannot cover certain topics optimally or completely ourselves, we draw on the know-how from our network. The aim is always to offer our clients holistic solutions.
