  • drafting privatisation documents
  • processing bidders applications
  • ensuring compliance with local laws
  • drafting transfer contracts
  • corporate governance issues
  • antitrust considerations assessment of legal and regulatory environment

We have considerable in-depth knowledge about the political and legal system, relevant industries, auction bidding and public offerings. We have experience in advising prospective bidders on legal and regulatory structural issues and negotiating all agreements and licenses necessary to implement such privatisations. In addition, we advise clients on the sale of all or a portion of the equity interest in the assets being privatised, as well as on the sale of individual assets or stock in a privately negotiated or public auction-like process.

Concession contracts are one of the methods to transfer the management of public assets to the private sector or to attract private investors to major infrastructure projects. Our lawyers work with private investors on infrastructure projects and on long-term management contracts of public assets in Moldova.
